Arizona's 20-Day Preliminary Notice — What if the Project Takes Less than 20 Days?

Did you know that if you are a contractor working in Arizona, you have to send out an Arizona 20-day Preliminary Notice in order to have the right later on to record a Mechanic’s Lien?  Properly completing and serving the 20-Day Preliminary Notice is a prerequisite to being able to record a lien.  Recording a lien is the contractor’s means to get security for the work done on the property to help ensure payment.

But what happens if your project takes less than 20 days to complete?  When should you send out your notice, or is one even required?  This short video taken from our seminar on Arizona Mechanic’s Lien laws, addresses this concern.
