Why Use A Pre-Lien Notice
Pre-Lien Notices are useful tools sent to your customer prior to your lien expiry date. Sending the appropriate notice could be all you need in order to prompt fast payment from your customer for your outstanding account.
Some people don’t want to file a lien without notice, or view liens as harsh and believe it could jeopardize their business relationships on a project. For those with these concerns, consider the using a Lien-Pro Notice. The use of the appropriate notice will let your customer know you are serious about getting paid. If the notice does not prompt payment, you will then know that filing a lien may be required in order to have your non-payment issue addressed.
Sending a pre-lien notice alerts your customer to the possibility of action, and opens lines of communication to get those involved on a project talking.
