Good question! When it comes to preliminary notice, it's generally more important to include the correct information of the owner, contractor, project, and the estimate for the cost of work to be performed. It's always a good idea to include the most correct information possible to create an environment where communication and collaboration is easy, but some small issue like using one business address over another one (where both addresses could be utilized to contact the business) would be unlikely to invalidate preliminary notice that's provided and otherwise correct. That being said - if communications regarding a project should be sent to a central business address rather than a satellite office, utilizing the main business address on a preliminary notice should not really affect the viability of the notice. After all, the California Civil Code only calls for the "name and address" of the party sending notice - and the central business address of a company very likely qualifies as its "address". For more information about California notices, these resources should be helpful: (1) California Lien & Notice FAQs; and (2) Guide to California's 20-Day Preliminary Notice.
