Get help filing your Mississippi Preliminary Notice
Mississippi’s law requires parties deliver a notice of intention to file a mechanics lien in certain circumstances — specifically, when work is being performed on a single-family residential project. If working on such a project, what is called a “Pre-Lien Notice” must be delivered to the property owner at least ten days prior to filing a mechanics lien claim. This form can be used to fulfill this requirement.
Rules and regulations for sending a Mississippi Preliminary Notice
Before filing a Mississippi mechanics lien on a single-family residential property, any party who did not contract with the property owner must deliver a Notice of Intent to Lien at least 10 days before filing the lien. The sending of the Notice of Intent to Lien does not suspend the ordinary 90-day filing period. As such, this deadline marks 79 days from when you last furnished labor and/or materials to the project. This is your absolute last chance to deliver the required Notice of Intent to Lien and still qualify to file your mechanics lien within the 90-day filing period.
After completing the Mississippi Pre-Lien Notice for Residential Projects 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.

Can we send one preliminary notice for a job that has multiple addresses in Mississippi?
First, it'd probably be worthwhile to check and see what your attorney did last time a similar project was done. That'd probably be a useful baseline for moving forward - a Mississippi attorney should be privy to a niche MS lien law issue, like this one.
When providing supplies for a project that spans multiple buildings and lots, the safest way to proceed would be to send a notice for each property where work is being done. Granted, that may not be necessary. Sending one notice which identifies all of the addresses associated with a singular project may well be sufficient, especially when the properties all fall under the same agreement, are owned by the same owner, and lay adjacent to one another.
Looking at Mississippi's notice laws, specifically - MS requires that a subcontractor's preliminary notice be sent to the GC, and they should understand the project particularly well. So, sending that GC a notice which identifies all of the separate addressess where work is being done could be perfectly effective when they're also doing work at all of those same addresses. That'd seem especially true when all of the separate lots were adjacent to eachother and owned by the same owner.
Ultimately, though, Mississippi's mechanics lien statute doesn't address notice requirements where a project extends to multiple lots. So, unfortunately, there's no cut and dry rule. For other questions on Mississippi's preliminary notice rules: Mississippi Mechanics Lien Guide and FAQs.
