If we provide materials and labor for both general contractors and sometimes directly for a homeowner, what are our prelien requirements?
We supply both materials and labor sometimes via a contract with a general contractor, and sometimes with our own contract directly to a homeowner. Some management members believe that when we are supplying labor and materials directly to a homeowner a prelien is not required to retain our lien rights here in California. Can you please clarify is that is accurate? Also what about the notifying Lender requirements when employed via a general contractor versus a homeowner?
