Is it ok to send 1 preliminary notice for multiple lots being developed by a single owner?

CaliforniaPreliminary Notice

We've done this for many years, but have never had to see if it stands up legally. We are the primary materials supplier, and send just 1 preliminary notice to a major developer for multiple lots. Are our balances just as secure using this approach as if we sent a separate notice for each lot? The developer would prefer not to have any more pieces of communication than necessary.

This is a great question, and we've seen it pop up a few times of late. If all of the lots are at one site, are done pursuant to the same agreement, and all lots are owned by the same owner, one preliminary notice should suffice. However, if the material is supplied to multiple lots at different sites, separate notices should be sent. Also, if work was done pursuant to multiple contracts, multiple notices may be in order.
