A Notice of Intention to File a Mechanics Lien is a letter you probably never expect to send. You complete the job, you expect to get paid…
however it doesn’t always work that way.
Most of us can’t afford to work for free and shouldn’t have to.
You work hard and have your own bills to pay.
So it can be very disheartening when you complete a service order, send out the bill and get no response.
When this does happen…exercise your right to file a lien and send this letter to inform your customer of your intentions.
Hopefully this will be an eye-opener, you get paid shortly thereafter and not further action need occur.
