In an industry that often encounters slow pay, short pay, and no pay issues, preliminary notices and mechanics liens are contractors’ and subcontractors’ most valuable tools for settling payment disputes.
As we’ve previously covered, even the slightest mistake when preparing your preliminary notice or mechanics lien can lead to the loss of your lien rights.
This can become even more challenging if there are any changes in pre-lien or lien law that you are unaware of.
CNS has been around for almost 40 years. During our time servicing contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers, there have been several legislative changes concerning the laws that govern the mechanics lien process.
We prioritize staying on top of any changes, large or small, to provide our customers with the most up-to-date and accurate prelim and mechanics lien services.

Changes That Can Affect Your Pre-lien or Mechanics Lien
Law changes and other outside factors can seriously impact the validity of your preliminary notices or mechanics liens when trying to receive due payment.
Some of these changes are large and may be widely known, while others can be small and slip under the radar until it’s too late.
Several years ago, the entire construction section of the civil code underwent a significant restructuring. This was done to clarify several topics, create new requirements, and change some of the language in how the various documents must be presented to hold up in court.
However, more recent changes affect how preliminary notices are processed. These changes can happen at any time without warning and include things such as postage rate changes and certified mail changes.
