Mississippi Lien Forms
Notice of Intent to Lien
In Mississippi, there is no requirement that a Notice of Intent to Lien be sent. However, you may be interested in delivering a Notice of Intent to the property owner and/or general contractor before filing a Lien or Stop Notice.
This Notice of Intent to Lien provides the noticed party 10-days to arrange payment before the Lien is filed.
Remember that this is not a required filing, and will not suspend or extend the time period allowed to you to file a lien. In Mississippi, those who contract with the owner have 12 months from the date a debt becomes due to lien. Others can send a Stop Notice at any time, but it will only have effect to money in the owner’s hands, and not yet paid to the prime contractor.
