As a subcontractor we installed a traffic signal for GC who was contracted to build a new chain grocery store. The grocery store owner was required to install and pay for traffic signal by county. However once accepted by the county they will maintain the traffic signal, which is located on CR541, Burlington Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey. Would this be deemed a public or private project. We would like to file a NJ Mechanic Lien but have not sent a preliminary notice. We are at 85 days since last working on project so if its deemed public we are out of time. ...Read More

I am a sub of a sub on a municipal building in NJ that we have invoiced at 80% over 60 days ago. Our contract amount is $10,000.00. We have not sent a prelim notice. If I am understanding this correctly if we file a prelim now we can only really protect the 20% yet to complete. Is there nothing that can be done about the 80%?...Read More

New JerseyLien DeadlinesMechanics LienPreliminary Notice
My company designs and supplies equipment to contractors. The first thing we do after receiving an order is generate an engineering submittal, which can take up to 6 weeks of labor. Then the customer approves it, or asks for corrections before approving it. This approval is our first billing milestone. So when setting a "Date Labor or Materials Last Delivered" in zlien, do I use the date on which we begin expending labor? Or do I use the date that submittals are approved, which is the date where the customer believes they've actually had something 'delivered' to them?
