However, sometimes mistakes happen. Someone forgets to send a notice on a certain project, or someone decides not to send a notice for whatever reason, and then a payment issue crops up further on down the line.
And that begs the question: can you still file a mechanics lien on a project if you did not send a preliminary notice?
Sometimes, these folks have already made an attempt to navigate the mechanics lien process on their own. This is not surprising since construction people are used to building things, fixing things, and getting things done. But sometimes, people who are used to being able to do everything on their own can get themselves into trouble when they try to take on a task that is outside of their expertise.
Sadly, this can-do attitude can end up creating a mess when it comes to a lien filing, and it’s not uncommon for them to tell us that filing a lien on their own did not work out like they hoped it would.
A schedule of values (SOV) is used as management tool in monthly pay app processing, and as a valuable tool in evaluating a project’s progress as a completion percentage related to plan.
It’s natural to avoid complex paperwork, but a subcontractor agreement should always be put to writing. Here’s a free download of a simple subcontractor agreement.
Those preparing to recover from the California fires face a slew of challenges, but construction will play a huge part in restoring California communities affected by these fires.
There’s no other way to say it — a written contract signed by both parties is always better than a verbal contract or a simple handshake deal.
Part of zlien‘s mission since our founding has been to provide helpful tools and resources to the entire construction industry to help folks get paid the money they earned on their projects. As part of that, we even provide important construction payment templates and forms, free of charge, for use by anyone in the industry.
We have forms available for all 50 states, and that includes lien waivers. Below, please find links to download lien waivers for all 50 states.
