I have a job at 90 days - if my customer is going to pay in 7 days - can I send out an 14 day intent to lien letter and extend my 90 days?

That's a good question, and in a state other than Nevada, the answer would typically be "No." However, on Nevada residential construction projects, sending a Notice of Intent to Lien will actually extend the mechanics lien deadline by 15 days pursuant to NRS § 108.226. It's worth noting that, for residential projects, a Notice of Intent to Lien must be sent prior to filing a mechanics lien anyway. Otherwise, a mechanics lien filing will quite likely be deemed valid and unenforceable if the lien is challenged or an attempt to enforce the lien is made.
