We have recently began using Levelset and we were told that notice of commencement is only to protect the general contractor from the supply company or sub contractor from also filing a lien, but because we know that it will not be a situation for us it is not required in our case. We want to make sure that we aren't missing any necessary steps to secure that a lien can be filed. Please note that this situation pertains to jobs in GA and SC. ...Read More

Hi! We are a paving subcontractor in Georgia. We are working in a subdivision with different phases and contracts. We filed a Preliminary Notice of Lien Rights for Phase 1. The builder was unable to complete house closings due to the Preliminary Notice. We got paid and released the notice. We are now working on Phase 2, which is a separate contract, but the same subdivision, and want to file a new Preliminary Notice of Lien Rights for Phase II. However, we don't want to interfere with the house closings in Phase 1. What can we do to protect ourselves? Thank you!...Read More

Due to the extreme volatility of the current lumber market, some of our big jobs are being sold across multiple purchase orders to reflect changes in lumber prices. For example, one of our current projects only has a firm price for the first building of the job. As the project continues into the other buildings, new purchase orders will be issued accordingly. This makes it difficult to determine the total estimated contract price. Is this something to be concerned about as far as sending the notices with an estimated total contact amount? ...Read More

We are a metal building broker in GA that sells customized metal buildings. We require a 20% deposit when the building is ordered. After the building (approx 8-12 weeks later) has been manufactured, we require payment of balance by certified funds on delivery. We have a customer that paid by ACH transfer a couple of days before delivery. The day of delivery, we were notified that ACH funds transfer was being reversed due to insufficient funds. Therefore the building delivery did not take place and we have possession of the customized building in a storage facility. ...Read More

GeorgiaPayment BondPreliminary Notice
We have a job in Georgia where the owner of the property demanded they be removed for the preliminary notice we sent because they did not order the service we are providing. I retracted the letter from the property owner after discussing their rights Georgia laws protecting them. However, I feel that we should still have the right to have the owner of the property on the preliminary notice/lien claim regardless of their involvement with the leasee and services requested. Although we are not expecting any payment issues with this particular company, it would still be good to add someone to the notice if that would help preserve our lien rights. Is it a good idea to add the leasee to the notice or resend the preliminary notice to the owner and hope that we do not have to file a lien?...Read More
