File an Alabama Mechanics Lien

 

alabama mechanics lienLienItNow prepares, files and serves Alabama construction liens for a fee of $290.00. Liens filed on private property or on funds relating to a public project are known as Mechanic’s Liens. When a lien is filed with regard to work performed on privately owned property, it attaches to and encumbers the fee simple ownership of property. Mechanics’ liens do not attach to publicly owned property in Alabama. If title to the land is held by the state or a political subdivision thereof, no mechanics’ lien right is afforded. Projects performed by industrial development boards, however, are not considered publicly owned property, and therefore a mechanics’ lien can be filed on industrial development board property.

File an Alabama Pre-Lien Notice

LienItNow.com prepares, files and serves Alabama pre-lien notices for a fee of $50.00.

This notice should also be provided to the construction lender, if its identity can be reasonably determined. Material suppliers without a direct contract with the owner must file service of written notice of intent to claim a lien on the owner and construction lender before the supplied material is used in connection with the project.

File an Alabama Stop Notice

LienItNow.com prepares and serves Alabama Stop Notices for a fee of $125.00. A Stop Notice is a notification that has the ability to enhance the effectiveness of a mechanic’s lien. A Stop Notice, or a notice to withhold funds, is sent to the company that is financing or funding the construction funds for a project. Once that company receives the Stop Notice, that company has notice that it should withhold sufficient money to satisfy the stop notice claim. The purpose of the Stop Notice is to provide the lender, financiers or funders of the construction project notice that there is money owed to a contractor, subcontractor or supplier so that an inquiry can be made as to why that money is not being paid. Alabama Stop Notices remain in effect for 90 days.

File an Alabama Bond Claim

LienItNow.com prepares, files and serves Alabama Bond Claims for a fee of $275.00. Bond claims can only be filed on a project where the owner, contractor or subcontractor has obtained a payment bond to ensure that every contractor receives payment for the work performed on the Project. The payment bonds issued by sureties for construction projects have specific timing requirements, but most require claimants to submit claims against the bond within sixty to ninety days from the claimants’ last date of work. Bond claims are as or more effective than a lien claim because the payment bond acts as a guarantee that payment will be made for work properly completed.
