IndianaLien DeadlinesMechanics LienPreliminary Notice

I have noticed some discrepancies on your website. For example on this page about Indiana, it suddenly switches to Illinois. Also there is some discrepancy as to whether it is sixty days before work is started or sixty days after it is complete. Does not inspire confidence.

I'm not sure which page you are mentioning with respect to Illinois appearing in place of Indiana. I'm sorry for the confusion. We routinely examine and edit our website, but sometimes typographical or other similar errors slip through. With respect to Indiana requirements involving a 60-day time period, there are a couple possibilities.

1. Preliminary Notice

In Indiana, a preliminary notice is required from some parties on some jobs. Parties who do not contract directly with the property owner must give a preliminary notice when performing work on a residential project. If the project is for the original construction of a residence, the preliminary notice must be provided within 60 days of the claimant's first furnishing labor or materials to the projectNote, however, that this deadline is shortened to 30 days from first furnishing if the project is for the repair or alteration of an existing residence.

2. Mechanics Lien

The other potential 60-day deadline in Indiana is for the mechanics lien filing itself. For residential projects, a claimant must file a mechanics lien within 60 days from the date of last furnishing labor or materials. This deadline is pushed back to 90 days for projects other than residential projects.
