Document Title: Notice to Owner of Intent to Lien

Scope: State of Kentucky, Private Works

Time Constraints: While called a Notice of Intent to Lien (Lien Warning notice), the Kentucky form acts like a preliminary notice of furnishing. All jobs require notice, but when notice is actually required depends on the type of owner:

Owner Occupied Single or Family Dwelling: Notice of Intent must be served by certified mail or personal service on the owners within 45 days of last furnishing labor, materials or services unless the contract was directly with the owner or his authorized agent. In the latter case, notice is not required.

Otherwise: Notice of Intent must be served by certified mail or personal service on the owners within 75 days on claims less than $1,000.00, or 120 days on claims in excess of$1,000.00, of the last furnishing of labor, materials or services unless the contract is directly with the owner or his authorized agent. In the latter case, notice is not required.

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 to Owner of Intent to Lien, 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.
