Lien Law Online eLert for 1/2/2011 - California

January 2, 2011

Important changes in California’s lien law went into effect January 1, 2011. One of the changes requires lien claimants to serve any mechanic's lien they record with the project owner along with a Notice of Mechanic's Lien to perfect their lien rights. The specific wording which must be used for the Notice of Mechanic's Lien and the revised Claim of Lien form has been updated on the website.

Also, a lien claimant will need to record a Notice of Lis Pendens with the County Recorder's Office when filing a Lien Foreclosure action after January 1, 2011. Specifically, the Notice of Lis Pendens will need to be recorded within 20 days after filing the Lien Foreclosure action.
