Notices of Intent To Lien Filing
A Notice of Intent to Lien is required in some states, and is typically sent when unpaid on a construction project after last furnishing labor and/or materials to a project. This notice warns the property owner, prime contractor and/or other party that a mechanics lien or bond claim will be filed unless payment of overdue amounts is made within a certain period of time (i.e. 10 days).

Should You Send A Notice Of Intent To Lien?
When unpaid on a construction project, filing a mechanics lien or bond claim is the best remedy available to contractors and suppliers. However, since it’s always tough to finally decide about placing a mechanics lien, many wonder if they should file a notice of intent to lien first?
First, Are You Required To Send The Notice of Intent to Lien?
First things first, you may not really have a choice. In some states, contractors and suppliers are required to deliver a notice of intent to lien before filing the mechanics lien statement. In deciding whether to send a notice of intent to lien, you must determine if you’re in one of these states:
- North Dakota
Second, Do You Have The Time To Send A Notice of Intent To Lien?
Sending a notice of intent to lien takes time…and time is valuable when filing a mechanics lien claim. In fact, regardless of where you’re performing work, you only have a set amount of time to file your mechanics lien, and sending a notice of intent to lien will never extend your filing period. So, if you’re going to send a notice of intent to lien, make sure you have the time to send it and still file your mechanics lien on time.
Third, Will The Notice of Intent To Lien Make Any Difference?
Notices of Intent to Lien documents can be a fantastic idea because they may get the parties to issue you payment without you having to incur the expense and trouble of filing a mechanics lien. But, don’t send a notice of intent to lien if it’s going to be a waste of money. If someone is in a full-fledged dispute with you on the construction project about your workmanship, or claims to have terminated you…just go with the mechanics lien. The notice of intent to lien, in this instance, is likely to just be spinning your wheels.
