Alabama Notice of Unpaid Balance Lien

Declaring an Unpaid Balance Lien in Alabama

Unpaid balance liens are used by material suppliers on a construction job. The term "material suppliers" refers to those parties who furnish materials incorporated in the building or improvement on the subject property.

Employees of the contractor or persons furnishing material to him or her, shall have a lien that extends only to the amount of any unpaid balance due to the contractor by the owner or proprietor, and the employees and materialmen shall also have a lien on the unpaid balance. See Ala. Code Ann. 35-11-210.

The unpaid balance lien notice contains the names of the lien claimant and property owner, as well as a description of the owner's property and of the materials furnished, and the claimed price amount. The notice should be sent to the owner of the property and any other interested party by both regular and certified mail to ensure delivery.

Derrell S. said: I like the simplicity of your site and the reasonable charge for your services but for some reason you were unable to fulfill my order. Would appreciate knowing why. Derrell Sweem

Bobby W. said: The site delivered just what it promised - I needed a specific deed formatted for a specific county/state, and they delivered it at a great price. One note for improvement - it is not intuitively obvious that I could go back and re-download if necessary and this caused me stress, but a follow up email alleviated this. Great service!

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the kind words Bobby, have a great day!

Thomas N. said: TODD Form would not print surveyor degrees character (superscript "o") in Exhibit A. It also would not print the "Return Address" or "Prepared By" entries with my middle name as your example showed.

Gene K. said: I am still in the trial stage. I am an older lawyer. Any help I can get is worth it. Once you get used to the format and data fill in the deed thing is excellent. Very professional if not a little slow. I have only done three deeds in one state so I will have to see how it goes. I like the product and their attitude towards pleasing the customer. We'll see when I try the recording part.
