Alabama Lien Forms
Notice of Unpaid Lien
Those who did not contract with the property owner directly are required to deliver a Notice of Unpaid Lien to the property owner before filing a mechanics lien.
Delivery of this notice puts the owner on notice that a lien is claimed, and requires the owner to withhold funds sufficient to satisfy your claim. The earlier it is sent, the more likely it is to be received before the owner disburses those funds to the prime contractor, and the claimant loses any rights thereto.
