What you need to know before the nightmare begins

The Purpose of a Pre-Lien

A Pre-Lien, is a document that is created by the General Contractor/Subcontractor and given to the home owner in order to begin work. These notices are usually filed by contractors, subcontractors, material and equipment suppliers. Then generally served to Property Owners and General Contractors.

Where the Headache Begins

Scattered Paperwork

It can be difficult to prepare one, especially if you are lacking the proper tools to check for ownership discrepancies. Typically GC’s (General Contractors) are swamped with the sheer amount of paperwork due to change orders making the pre-lien process a nightmate.

The Consequences

Without a properly prepared and served Pre-Lien, you might lose your lien rights and may even receive disciplinary actions from the Contractors Licensing Board. Ultimately this could jeapordize the GC’s License and ability to work in additon to not being able to collect payment for the project.
