Questions we’ve already received:
- What’s the time frame within which the notice to the lien agent has to be sent?
- When is the homeowner required to hire a lien agent?
- Once the lien agent is hired, what is the obligation of the General Contractor to notify the subs?
- As a Subcontractor, what are the deadlines to notify the lower tier subcontractors?
- If a General Contractor is building their own residence, are they required to hire a lien agent? If a General Contractor is building their own vacation home, are they required to hire a lien agent?
- As a supplier, when is the deadline with which to send out a notice to the lien agent once they start providing materials to the job site?
- What happens if a lien agent has not been hired and there is no lien agent; what law applies?
- There is an indemnity agreement that people are being requested to sign; is that necessary?
- Do we still need to send a Notice of Subcontract? If so, when?
- We have a customer who has an order pending to be supplied and the customer has a pending construction loan to be closed. The customer wants us to provide the material but not invoice prior to the construction loan closing. Does this create a problem for us for protection?
- Some customers are getting upset when we give notice to the lien agent and threatening to not buy from us in the future if we continue to give the notice. How should we handle this?
- Why can’t we edit our own record once we entered it if we realize incorrect info is displayed? Why can’t an incorrect filing be removed?
- What happens if we don’t file within two weeks of shipping material to the job? Do we lose our lien rights, some of our lien rights or none at all?
- If we filed a lien notice on a builder but also supply material to one of the subs they’re using, do we need to file notice on the sub as well?
- If a job is bonded, is there a need for a lien agent?
- Is it still 90 days to file a lien on a government project?
- Does a supplier need to send a Notice of Subcontract and Notice to Lien Agent when supplying a job with a commercial data customer who contracted with the electrical contractor who contracted with the general contractor?
