Colorado liens filed with regard to public projects attach to the funds held by the public owner, which results in the contractor who has not paid its subcontractors and suppliers not getting paid until the lien is resolved.

File a Colorado Pre-Lien Notice of Intent to File a Lien Statement 

LienItNow.com prepares, files and serves Colorado pre-lien Notices of Intent to Lien for a fee of $85.00 and serves Preliminary Notices of Furnishing Labor or Materials for $50.00. In Colorado, a Notice of Intent to Lien is required at least 10 days prior to filing a Colorado lien statement. If a Notice of Intent is not filed at least 10 days prior to the filing of a mechanics lien, Colorado lien laws may invalidate the lien. A notice of intent to lien must be provided to the owner and the prime contractor.

A preliminary notice of furnishing labor or materials is a document sent at the beginning of a subcontractor or supplier's work, and is strongly encouraged so that the owner knows who is providing services and materials to the construction project. Preliminary notices often help to ensure payment comes on a timely and regular basis. In the event payment is not made, and lien waivers are regularly used for progress payments, the owner may notice that a subcontractor or supplier's waiver is not included in that month's paperwork, alerting them to an issue.

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.

LienItNow.com prepares, files and serves Colorado 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.
