LienItNow.com prepares, files and serves South Carolina Bond Claims. 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 more effective than a lien claim because the payment bond acts as a guarantee that payment will be made for work properly completed.
