I am still under a contract and have not been informed of it ending from the company rep. and was told a week ago that this would be paid this week for the third time. Is it too late to file a lien and how much time do I have.

I was told they were going through a change of C.E.O. and this would be resolved and then they money would be paid. I was told this several times over the past Three weeks, but I have a lot of trouble contacting them to get updates.

In Nevada, a mechanics lien must be recorded with the county recorder of the county in which the property is located within 90 days of the latest of the following: 1) the completion of the work or improvement; or 2) the last furnishing of labor or materials by the lien claimant. It's possible for this period to be shortened to 40 days, though, if a Notice of Completion is filed.

Note that on residential projects, a notice of intent to lien must be served on the owner at least 15 days prior to recording the lien itself, but the service of this notice extends the time for filing the lien by 15 days.

Additionally, in order to claim an enforceable lien in Nevada, parties that did not contract with the property owner must provide a preliminary notice to the owner and prime contractor within 31 days of first furnishing labor or materials to the project.
