On a commercial job, in the state of Nevada - I have a job at 90 days – if my customer is going to pay in 7 days – can I send out an 14 day intent to lien letter and extend my 90 days?
Customer is paying on day 90 - what if the payment bounces - can I extend the lien date by sending an "intent to lien" notice??

That's a really good question. While Nevada is one of the very few states that allows for the lien filing deadline to be extended, the "extension" only applies to certain projects. Specifically, NRS § 108.226(7) states that the Notice of Intent to Lien requirements, and therefore the extension, do not apply to the construction of any nonresidential construction project. However, it's worth noting that Nevada seems to define a "residential" project a little more broadly than other states. NRS § 108.226(6) states that the Notice of Intent rules apply when a project "involves the construction, alteration or repair of multifamily or single-family residences, including, without limitation, apartment houses..." Thus, while some jobs may typically be seen as commercial (such as an apartment complex or potentially a mixed use project) might fall under the Notice of Intent to Lien rules.
