What Is a Notice of Intent to Lien?

The first step in securing mechanic’s lien or bond claim rights is often the service of a statutory notice. The statutory notice, depending on the project state, may be called any number of names: Preliminary Notice, Prelien Notice, Notice to Owner, Notice of Furnishing, and the list goes on.

Once the preliminary notice is served, and payment has not been received, a Notice of Intent may be required. A Notice of Intent is a statutory notice, required in many states, to be served prior to filing a mechanic’s lien.
