Project Data Sheet in Other Documents tab improved

I have learned that the small number of PreLien2Lien customers are very passionate about using the Project Data Sheet. Lien Services especially use it as a tool for fact checking the legal parties names and addresses.

Based on two good suggestions from a Southern California based lien service the Project Data Sheet was improved to include the printing of Other Legal Parties, Other Liening Parties and Notes automatically created or manually entered on the Notes tab for the Project.

The Project Data sheet can be emailed from the Print Preview screen. When printed, it can be a good resource that documents who the legal parties are for a project and what notices have been printed and what notes have been entered.

KANSAS gets new notices, custom template technology (CTT)

Ten years ago I attended what might be the largest family reunion ever for my wife’s family in Wichita, KS on hot 4th of July weeked. This weekend I just finished entirely re-wrote for PreLien2Lien thirty-seven (37) new notices for the state of KANSAS.  They also have (CTT) Custom Template Technology, enabling each template notice to be customized for a one-time $50 fee. 

All contractors and suppliers must identify themselves in advance to the Owner on a new residential construction project by delivering to them a Notice Of Intent To Perform. On existing residential projects where a improvement is being made, Subcontractors must send a Warning Statement to the Owner prior to a Lien Statment being recoded.

General/Prime Contractors (Private Projects): KANSAS Statutes Annotated § 60-1102 mandate that a General/Prime Contractor on a commercial or residential project must record a Lien Statement with the Clerk of the District Court in the county where a project you provided construction related equipment, labor, materials or services is located. It must be recorded within four (4) months after the last day of supplying equipment, labor, materials, labor or services to a project.

Subcontractors (Private Projects): KANSAS Statutes Annotated § 60-1103 mandate that a Subcontractor on a commercial or residential project must record a Lien Statement with the Clerk of the District Court in the county where a project you provided construction related equipment, labor, materials or services is located. It must be recorded within three (3) months after the last day of supplying equipment, labor, materials, labor or services to a project.

LOUISIANA gets new notices, custom template technology (CTT)

New Orleans is an awesome city in my opinion.  Several visits there in the late 80s coincided with business tradeshows I attended.  You have to get a drink at Pat O’Briens in the French Quarter to get entertained by the dualing piano players.  Getting lunch at Commander’s Palace makes an ordinary person feel like royalty as multiple waiters serve your table like you were a King.

Thirty-four (34) notices were entirely re-written in PreLien2Lien.  They also have (CTT) Custom Template Technology, enabling each template notice to be customized for a one-time $50 fee. 

LOUISIANA is not a traditional 1st notice state for Subcontractors, but General/Prime Contractors do have to provide Owners with a Notice Of Contract. LOUISIANA Revised Statutes Annotated § 9:4811 mandates that for projects over $25,000 a Notice Of Contract be signed by the General/Prime Contractor and Owner and subsequently filed with the Recorder Of Mortgages of the parish in which the project is located before commencing work. Subcontractors still have the option of sending a Preliminary Notice. It will improve your chances of being paid on a timely basis, as it notifies all legal parties of your future right to file a Bond Claim, Statement Of Claim or Stop Notice in the event you are not paid on a timely basis.

General/Prime/Sub Contractors (Private Projects): LOUISIANA Revised Statutes Annotated § 9:4822(G) mandate that a Statement Of Claim must be recorded within thirty (30) days after the filing of a Notice Of Termination. If a Notice Of Termination has not been filed, a Statement Of Claim must be recorded within sixty (60) days of completion of providing labor or materials or the completion of the entire project. It is recorded at the Recorder Of Mortgages’ office in the parish where a project you provided construction related labor, services, equipment or materials is located.

General/Prime/Sub Contractors (Public Projects): LOUISIANA Revised Statutes Annotated § 38:2242(B) mandate that a Statement Of Claim-Public Project must be recorded within forty-five (45) days after the Public Authority records an acceptance of work of Notice Of Default. It is filed with the Public Authority for which the improvement was done for and recorded at the Recorder Of Mortgages’ office in the parish where a project you provided construction related labor, services, equipment or materials is located.
