Description: Notice of Right to Lien for Furnishing Labor, Materials or Equipment and Request for Copy of Public Bond.

Scope: State of Missouri, Public Works.

Time Constraints: Missouri has no requirements as to statutory provisions for bond claims. However, Missouri courts have continually upheld notice requirements included in the terms of the Payment Bond. Send the Notice of Right to Lien to (hopefully) obtain information as to the bond requirements, if the bonding company is not known, and then also serve a Notice of Right to Lien on the bonding company, too.

Payment Bond: Recovery on payment bonds is not covered by Missouri statutes. You will have to obtain a copy of the bond, if any, to find its terms and conditions.

Information Requirements: The information required by program and whether you intend to send an owner cover letter.

Form Types: Notice of Right to Lien for Furnishing Labor, Materials or Equipment and Request for Copy of Public Bond, Exhibits A-D (if needed) and Owner Letter (if used).

Procedures: Enter the program data, including Additional Legal Parties or Releases for Other Companies. Copies of all of the forms (less the Owner Cover Letter) must be sent to all public entities. Sending a copy to all general contractors, all lenders, all sureties or your customer is optional.

When in doubt, file your claim immediately.
