Preliminary Notice Services
The best way to justify large credit lines is to consistently serve preliminary notices and file mechanic’s liens and/or bond claims, as outlined by each state’s statutes. With our Preliminary Notice Program, we can help you understand each state’s lien laws and serve preliminary notices, establishing your right to file security under a mechanic’s lien or a bond claim.
Mechanic’s Lien Filing & Tracking
In the event you do not receive payment after serving a preliminary notice, we would recommend filing a mechanic’s lien or bond claim. Any time a service is requested and completed through NCS, we will automatically provide you with free project tracking, so you never miss a deadline. Learn more about:
Mechanic’s Lien Receivables Program
If you remain unpaid after filing a mechanic’s lien, immediate attention should be focused on collection efforts and financial recovery. With all requested services, NCS provides account access through a secure, online web portal that can be accessed 24/7.
Our Bankruptcy Monitoring option will alert you if your customer files for bankruptcy protection, allowing you to take swift action.
Account Placement Program
The many dates, details and deadlines for projects can be overwhelming. Our Account Placement Program can help you get a clear picture of mechanic’s lien or bond claim rights and their deadlines, and help minimize future collection placements.
Demand Letter Service
Your Customer’s Final Notice to Make Payment
If your customer has not paid you for your services, rather than immediately filing a mechanic’s lien or proceeding with suit, send a demand letter, also known as a collection letter. A demand letter can be served at any time, even if you have not served a preliminary notice. A demand letter is your customer’s final opportunity to remit payment before you take legal steps for effective financial recovery.
Demand letters can expedite payment, maintain your control of the collection process, and save you money.
A demand letter that is prepared and served by one of our attorneys is more likely to accelerate payment and improve DSO.
Provides for Creditor Action
The creditor retains control of the collection process rather than waiting for statutory deadlines.
Prompt demand letter payment reduces mechanic’s lien and suit filing costs.
If you still have not received payment after serving a demand letter, we will take more immediate action with our Mechanic’s Lien and Bond Claim Receivables Program.
