The total amount owed to our company for a particular project (in Tennessee) is $164,515. However, the monthly notices did not start getting issued when the job began. We issued three monthly notices of nonpayment, which together total only $13,542. When I completed the lien request form, it asked for the total outstanding amount from our customer. I entered the full amount owed of $164,515. Was that correct or should I have entered only $13,542?
