I signed a contract but don't own the property, what are my options?

ArizonaConstruction ContractPreliminary Notice

What are my options if a contractor had me sign a contract (I am not a legal representative of the party which owns the property - who are my parents) and the verbal contracts we made have been ignored for that which is written. They have now sent a Twenty Day Preliminary Notice which is addressed to my father's name yet he did not sign the contract. Do I respond to the notice as it was mailed to the property, and I live here but my parents do not.

A preliminary 20-day notice is not a lien. It simply provides notice that there may be a lien in the future if there is a dispute over payment, which there does not appear to be. Contractors have to send a preliminary 20-day notice or they lose their lien rights. If there is no dispute over payment and the work gets done right, the document has no legal significance.
