Lien and Notice Deadline Chart for Subcontractors

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.
