When is NRS 108.246 Notice required vs Notice of Right to Lien

NevadaPreliminary Notice

Hi, I'm trying to figure out what to list as when hired directly by the property owner instead of by a GC. Previously on Levelset, we use to list as the General Contractor and be able to send the Notice of Right to lien. I was on yesterday and put in that we are the General Contractor, the only document available to send was NRS 108.246 Notice. Is this required in this particular situation or should I list as a subcontractor and send the Notice of Right to Lien.

If you have a contract directly with the owner, then you are required to provide the notice included within NRS 108.246. The purpose of the "Notice of Right to Lien" is to give the owner of the property notice that the subcontractor or supplier exists and that they are providing labor and/or materials to the project. This helps the owner protect itself by knowing who is working on the project and it allows the owner to require that the General Contractor provide lien releases throughout the project for those subs. When you have a contract directly with the owner, the owner knows if it pays or not. Please be aware that NRS 624 requires the general contractor for residential construction to provide a list of subcontractors working on the project , as well as a notice outlining the lien statute and the recovery fund options.
