I want to be sure we take care of the necessary steps before we ever have to file a Lien notice. From what I have read up on, we need to have a "Notice of Contract" in order to back up a Pirliminary Lien Notice before filing the actual Lien Notice. Is this correct? Would a Signed Job Proposal/Estimate with a Scope of Work and Payment Terms cover us for any of the following steps to cover us getting paid? We only send a Preliminary Lien Notice if a client is paying us accordingly, correct?
