Follow up to "Do I need to send a preliminary notice for individual properties if I have an MSA in place?"

Thank you for answering my previous question. Does that train of thought that you detailed also apply to other states, such as Texas? What about Puerto Rico?

Thanks Again

Typically, even there’s one overarching contract, notice should be sent based on each property where work is performed. That’s true of Texas and Puerto Rico as well as generally every other state. In some cases, when working on multiple lots of the same overall project property, sending one notice may be sufficient. But, when the properties are completely unrelated and do not lie adjacent to one another, multiple notices will typically be required.

Note that Texas has tough notice requirements, but that Puerto Rico does not require preliminary notice on private projects.

Also, here’s a link to that previous question hinted at above: Do I need to send a preliminary notice for individual properties if I have an MSA in place?
