Document Title: Notice of Contract

Scope: State of Kentucky, Private Works

Time Constraints:  In general, all jobs require notice, but when notice is actually required depends on the type of relationship to the owner.  Usually, 1st, 2nd and 3rd tier subcontractors and suppliers must send a Notice of Contract, especially when supplying under contact, to insure their full rights.

When to send: The Notice of Contract should be sent when the job begins for the claimant, or shortly thereafter.  This establishes full rights when a claim is begun with the Notice of Intent.  The form must be notarized!

However, it is our strong recommendation that you serve notice on all jobs and within the time frame demanded by the owner occupied job. This will prevent any errors since the most restrictive conditions listed under the law will be met.

Information Requirements: The type of document you need, the information required by the program and whether you intend to send an owner cover letter.

Form Types: Notice of Contract with notary attachment, Exhibits A-D (if needed), and the Owner Letter (if used).

Procedures: Enter the program data, including Additional Legal Parties or Releases for Other Companies. Serve a copy on the owners within the time frames described above. Service on prime contractors, lenders, sureties and your customer is optional.

When in doubt, file your lien claim immediately.
