How long do you have to file a lien once you file a notice of intent

NevadaNotice of Intent to Lien

I am a contractor and started work on a project. The client stopped us from working and is refusing to let us finish and not paying us for what has been completed. We have filed a notice of intent. How long do we have now to file the actual lien?

A Nevada Notice of Intent to Lien is only required on residential projects and must be served on both the property owner, and the prime contractor (if any). Once served, the claimant will have to wait at least 15 days to file their Nevada mechanics lien claim. The deadline to file a NV lien claim is 90 days from either completion of the project, or 90 days from the last date of furnishing labor or materials to the project; whichever is later. One interesting thing to note is that in Nevada, the service of this notice will extend the deadline by 15 days. But it's best not to wait until the last minute to get the ball rolling. Here's some additional reading that may prove useful:
