The job last regular shipment occurred in October - then we sent a few warranty items on Nov 30 - but customer also realized they used 50 of our tie plates wrong. We sent them new ones at no charge. We are trying to see if this will satisfy the 60 day window for filing the lien.

In Louisiana, if a Notice of Contract was not filed, project participants not in contact with the property owner have 60 days from the date the Notice of Termination was filed, or 60 days from the date of substantial completion of the work (if no Notice of Termination was filed). On residential projects, when no Notice of Contract was filed, a material supplier will actually have 70 days from the Notice of Termination or from the completion of the project (if no Notice of Termination was filed). Note, however, this deadline is based on the completion of the project as a whole - not based on a party's final furnishing on the project.
