I am a subcontractor working on a large commercial job. We have not finished our work on the job, and I need to know if I send a pre - lien notice now is it still going to protect what I am owed moving forward? I am from California
A pre-lien is only valid if sent at least 20 days before you start work.
At this point, if you need to file a lien for non-payment, you can only lien your last 20 days of work.
You still have breach of contract rights if you are not paid but your lien rights are limited.
