How This Tool
The process of filing a mechanic’s lien begins well before payment problems ever arise; in fact, it should be a process that you begin for every single construction project you work on. Contractors and subcontractors who utilize mechanic’s lien notices in their payment processing may be paid 49% faster than average.
The mechanic’s lien is not a single document. Additionally, many states require that a contractor send several specific notices ahead of time in order to protect their legal ability to actually file the lien later down the road, should the need arise. These notices are called Preliminary Notices, and Notices of Intent to Lien. While you may rarely file a mechanic’s lien in full, these notices serve as a formal “recommendation” that you get paid in full, on-time – or else the lien will be filed. Furthermore, these notices show that you’re knowledgeable in your field, and serious about getting paid. 9 times out of 10, that’s all it takes.
This tool takes all of the guesswork out of your mechanic’s lien filing deadlines – simply select your state, input some basic information, and you’ll receive timed, automated emails sent directly to your inbox reminding you when it is time to send your notices or file your liens.
It takes less than 1 minute to set up and the entire tool is absolutely free.
