About Wisconsin Notice of Intent to Lien Form

In Wisconsin, all claimants must serve a Notice of Intention to File Claim of Lien upon the property owner before filing the Claim of Lien (mechaincs lien). Since the Notice of Intent must be served at least 30 days before filing the lien, Notice of Intention to File must be served within 5 months from last furnishing labor and/or materials at the very latest.

Notices of Intent to lien are frequently successful at producing payment (without having to take the next step of filing a lien). If a party is refusing to pay your claim or ignoring your phone calls, sending a Notice of Intent to Lien to that party, the prime contractor and/or the property owner can let them know you’re serious about collecting and prioritize your payment.
