MISSOURI gets new notices, custom template technology (CTT)

By November 3, 2008No Comments

I think a lot about my my first professional job out of colllege.  I drove frequently to MISSOURI for business trips there from 1988-1990.  Myself and my sparsely annoited Pontiac 6000 company car drove once every other month from my office alongside O’Hare Airport to St. Louis for five (5) hours to see my largest customer, Sigma-Aldrich Co., as the Midwest District Sales Manager for a trade journal magazine that is known today as Bioscience Technology.

I just finished entirely writing for PreLien2Lien thirty-six (36) new notices for the state of MISSOURI.  They also have (CTT) Custom Template Technology, enabling each template notice to be customized for a one-time $50 fee. 

MISSOURI is not a traditional 1st notice state for Subcontractors, but General/Prime Contractors do have to provide Owners with a Notice To Owner. It forewarns Owners that Subcontractors have a future right to lien if payment is not made to them.  It also advises them to request payment waivers (Partial/Full Conditional/Unconditional waivers and releases for payments made to “persons” supplying labor or materials for a project.

General/Prime/Sub Contractors (Private Projects): MISSOURI Revised Statutes § 429-080 mandate that a General/Prime/Sub contractors 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 six (6) months after the last day of supplying equipment, labor, materials, labor or services to a project.
