Description: Notice to Owner of Intent to Lien.

Scope: State of Missouri, Private Works

Time Constraints: The type of preliminary notice you use for Missouri private works depends on the type of work you are doing:

Rental Equipment, Equipment Suppliers: In addition to the requirements below, you must give notice to the owner within 5 days of furnishing equipment or machinery.

Residential Work: If you are furnishing labor, materials or services to a residential property, (unless you are the original contractor,) you must obtain the consent of the owner to lien his property in the event of non-payment before you supply your services. Serve the notice by certified mail or personal service on the owners and include a copy of the Notice to Owner of Intent to Lien for signature and an envelope for return to you. If this agreement is not signed you cannot claim a lien.

Commercial Work: Serve a copy of the Notice to Owner of Intent to Lien by certified mail or personal service on the owners, prime contractors, lenders and sureties before the first furnishing of your labor, materials or services.

In either case, you must still serve a Lien Warning Notice before you have a right to claim a lien. See the section on Missouri Notice of Intent to File a Lien, Private Work, for more information.

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 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, prime contractors, lenders and sureties within the time frames described above. For residential owners include an additional copy and return envelope.

When in doubt, file your lien claim immediately.
