Every state’s laws dictate the deadlines to file and enforce a mechanics lien.
Most states also have deadlines to send preliminary notices.
We simplified and compiled the deadlines to do each of the following, in all 50 states (and Washington DC):
- Send a Preliminary Notice
- Send a Notice of Intent to Lien
- File a Mechanics Lien
- Enforce a Mechanics Lien
These deadlines are for subcontractors hired by somebody other than the property owner.
