Get help filing your Alabama Preliminary Notice
Anyone who furnishes material (material suppliers certainly, but ambiguous as to whether subcontractors who also supply materials must comply), and who are not contracting directly with the owner, should deliver a Notice to Owner prior to delivering any materials. Doing so entitles the party to a Full Price Lien rather than the usual Unpaid Balance Lien. Regardless of whether a Notice to Owner is or is not delivered, prior to filing a Statement of Lien (i.e. the mechanics lien), anyone who is not in direct contract with the owner must deliver a Notice of Unpaid Lien to the property owner.
Rules and regulations for sending a Alabama Preliminary Notice
In Alabama, those who do not contract with the property owner can expand their rights to lien the project by sending a Preliminary Notice to Owner before delivering materials to the project. If this notice is not sent, a claimant will only have rights to lien funds not yet paid to the general contractor by the owner at the time of the lien, but if it is sent a claimant can lien the property regardless of the payment to the general contractor.
After completing the Alabama Notice to Owner Before Work Form, you must deliver it to the appropriate parties required by statute. Notices are typically served on the property owner and, for sub-tier parties, the general contractor. However, depending on the type of notice, it can be helpful to send notices to anyone else who is in charge of your payment, like a lender or surety company on the project.
