If our Company is done on a job site, yet there are other Subs/suppliers etc on the job site as the project is NOT complete, does this prolong our Lien rights?

We have several GC's who delay payment, or say they won't pay Retention until the project is complete. Our part of the job is done months before the project is complete due to the nature our our work. Do our lien rights stay in place until the project is complete? (Nevada)

That's a great question, and the answer actually varies by state. Luckily, Nevada is pretty lenient on this point. In Nevada, the deadline to file a lien claim will be 90 days after the later of the last date the claimant furnished labor or materials to the project; or after the completion of the entire work of improvement. So whichever date occurs last - the claimant's last furnishing or the overall completion date - is the date which the 90 day clock will be based on. However, it's worth noting that the deadline can be shortened to a mere 40 days if a Notice of Completion is filed.
