When unpaid on a construction project in Vermont, you may file a “Notice of Mechanics Lien” with the town clerk and have a copy served on the property owner to assert a mechanics lien claim against the property. While the name of the lien document is a “Notice of Mechanics Lien,” do not be alarmed; this is indeed the mechanics lien filing, and not a simple preliminary or intent notice. The “Notice of Mechanics Lien” must be filed with the clerk of the town in which the project is located. A copy of the lien must be sent to the property owner at the time of filing by certified mail, return receipt requested.
