If the project gets cancelled,then obviously the owner would be fully aware of that. But, if they are requesting a notice of some kind, what is your suggestion?

That's interesting. If a project is cancelled before it ever gets going, and nothing is owed, there would be little point in sending a preliminary notice - nothing would be lienable, and there won't be any payment chain to illuminate. Thus, if a notice is being requested on a project that has already been cancelled, sending notice might be pointless and likely would not be required. But sending one couldn't hurt. However, it's conceivable that a top of chain party like a contractor, owner, or even a higher-tiered sub to request some kind of notice that states there are no existing lien rights on the project. Such a notice wouldn't be required, but if nothing is owed on the job, it might not hurt to provide such a notice. Plus it could help to foster a positive relationship with the party requesting it.
