Good question! The requirement for a Colorado Notice of Intent to Lien is set out by CRS § 38-22-109(3), which states, in part, "Such notice of intent shall be served by personal service or by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the last known address of such persons, and an affidavit of such service or mailing at least ten days before filing of the lien statement with the county clerk and recorder shall be filed for record with said statement and shall constitute proof of such service." Based on the bolded portion of that excerpt, it would seem the timeline would run from the mailing of service, rather than the receipt.
