I haven't been paid due to a conflict between the building owner and the City of San Leandro

In California, all parties on a construction project (other than wage laborers) must provide preliminary notice in order to retain the ability to file a valid and enforceable lien. On private projects, parties who contract directly with the property owner only need to send this notice to the lender, if there is one. On public projects, parties who contract directly with the public entity do not have bond claim rights, so no notice is applicable.
