Can I email my non paying customer that I will pursue the Mechanics Lien process before actually going through with it to see if that motivates payment before I start with step one? In colorado.

ColoradoNotice of Intent to Lien

My customer is refusing payment stating that the project has taken too long and doesn't look like they want it to. They waited to express these concerns and then "ban" me from their property until I requested payment rather than expressing their complaints right away so I could address them.

Absolutely! And honestly, that's usually a good idea. It's almost always advisable to try to resolve a dispute without having to initiate the lien filing process (which, as you likely know, also requires a Notice of Intent to Lien in Colorado). Alternatively, sending a more generic "Notice of Intent to Lien" might provide a similar benefit to sending an email notifying the customer that the lien process may soon be initiated. This document can be emailed, mailed, or hand delivered since it isn't a required document.Of course, sending a generic Notice of Intent to Lien will not replace Colorado's required Notice of Intent to Lien (aka "step one" ) - so if a lien filing is eventually pursued, that step will still be required before actually filing a Colorado mechanics lien.
