Rules and regulations for sending a New Jersey Mechanics Lien
Liens must be filed in New Jersey within 90 days from when the claimant last furnishes labor and/or materials to a construction project. This deadline marks the 90 day period from when you last performed labor and/or materials.
After completing the New Jersey Construction Lien Form, you must deliver it to the appropriate parties required by statute. Notices are typically served on the property owner and, for sub-tier parties, the general contractor. However, depending on the type of notice, it can be helpful to send notices to anyone else who is in charge of your payment, like a lender or surety company on the project.

Can i file a Mechanic lien
Intentionally passing a bad check = fraud. You may able to get puntive damages against this guy. If the amount of money is anything considerable, you should consider suing him to try get your unpaid bills PLUS attorneys' fees. You might have a hard time finding a lawyer to represent you on contingency (they don't get paid until you do), but you have a good chance of making this deadbeat repay whatever reasonable sum you were forced to pay for legal counsel.
Can a contractor file a lien without court?
No. If the contractor tries to lien your house, you would receive notice of the same and be given an opportunity to contest the lien claim. If it has been more than 60 days since the work was performed, and you have not received a NUB (or "Notice of Unpaid Balance), you should be clear as far as potential NJ residential liens go.
Should I file lien against each homeowner or the condo association
New Jersey has specific rules regarding mechanics liens, condominiums, and community associations. When a contractor is performing work pursuant to an agreement with the community association, rather than directly with an owner or owners, the lien is against the association, itself - pursuant to § 2A: 44A-3(c)(2) of the New Jersey mechanics lien statutes.
To the extent that there's a direct contract with any individual owner(s), the lien claim would attach directly to the individual unit(s).
