On projects with difficult or non-existent addresses it can be difficult to determine how to describe the property on a notice or lien document.

California has the following requirement for describing the project location on a preliminary notice: "A description of the site sufficient for identification, including the street address of the site, if any. If a sufficient legal description of the site is given, the effectiveness of the notice is not affected by the fact that the street address is erroneous or is omitted."

It's generally best practice to describe the property as fully as possible - but California allows an error in or omission of the street address in cases in which the property is otherwise sufficiently described.
