Can we file Lien if payment is not due yet

OhioConstruction ContractMechanics Lien

Hello! Our new client in Ohio is proposing NET90 days payment terms after the delivery, we checked that in Ohio due date to file Lien is 75 days after the last delivery. Could we file a legit Lien between Lien due dates, even though according to our contract terms payment will be not due yet? Thank you

Great question. Yes you can! Technically you can file a lien for work as soon as it is performed on a project. In your case you could file a lien anywhere from the 1st through 75th days of work being performed (although filing on the 1st day may ruffle a few feathers).
