If amount owed stated in the prelims are wrong can you correct it after you serve prelim notice or issue a new prelim?

CaliforniaPreliminary Notice

Are Prelim requirements in California the same for any and all types of liens, including lesser known Self Storage types? And, if the charges stated in the prelims are incorrect can you correct them after you serve prelim notice or do you have to issue a new prelim?

No, 20-day pre-lien or preliminary notices only apply to mechanics liens.

You can serve an updated Preliminary Notice, but it will only cover the work labor or services provided within Twenty Days from the date of service of the revised notice. Generally, if your original Preliminary Notice reflected the amount of your subcontract, you should be fine if there are subsequent events that change the amount of your subcontract. If you are subcontracting with another contractor or subcontractor on the same project, you may wish to give consideration to sending a new Preliminary Notice. I suggest you have a construction lawyer take a look at your subcontracts and guide you.
