Claims may only be made against that portion of the Contract Price you have not yet paid to your prime contractor as of the time this notice was given to you or three days after this notice was mailed to you. Review the back of this notice for more information and ways to avoid lien claims.




We have or will be providing professional services, materials, or equipment for the improvement of your commercial or new residential project.
