I’ve read a lot of mechanic lien resources in my day, and most of the time, these online resources try to explain everything about the lien laws to the reader. Heck, this is the case even with our resources. But, you really don’t need to know everything. If you’re a material supplier, you only need to know the information relevant to suppliers. If you’re usually a prime contractor, you only need to know how the law applies to primes. And so on.
In light of the blog series here for material suppliers, I’ve collated a lot of our lien law resources to create a state-by-state breakdown of what a material supplier needs to know about preliminary notices, mechanic liens and bond claims on state, county, federal and private projects in the United States.
The state-by-state guide is a little robust to include within the post, so you have to click on this link to view it, or you can download it at the link below. Enjoy!
