TexasLien DeadlinesMechanics LienPreliminary Notice

it is my understanding pre-lien notices are due the 15th of the 3rd month after services have been performed (we are the subcontractor) at what point is the lien to be filed?

Texas has some very confusing notice and lien deadlines. I'll break this information into two parts:

Notice:
For residential projects, notice is required to be sent to the owner and prime contractor by the 15th day of the 2nd month following the month that work was performed and unpaid. (Notice must be sent for each month work was performed and unpaid.)

For subcontractors on non-residential projects, the deadline is the 15th day of the 3rd month following each month work was performed and unpaid.

For Sub-Subcontractors, the deadline is both the 15th day of the 2nd month, and the 15th day of the 3rd month, following each month in which work was performed and unpaid.

Lien:
Must be filed by 15th day of the 4th calendar month after the day on which the debt accrued.
NOTE, HOWEVER, this is shortened to the 15th day of the 3rd month if the project is residential.
