Requesting Information to Draft a Preliminary 20-Day Notice in Arizona

A preliminary 20-day notice in Arizona typically requires information from the owner. Sending an information request form allows the claimant to obtain the necessary details in time to file the preliminary notice.

The property owner must reply within ten days after receiving the written request and furnish a written statement containing the following information pursuant to AZ. REV. STAT. 33-922.01(I):

1. The legal description, subdivision plat, street address or location with respect to commonly known roads or other landmarks in the area, or any other description of the jobsite sufficient for identification.

2. The name and address of the owner or reputed owner.

3. The name and address of the original contractor or reputed contractor.

4. The name and address of the construction lender, if any, or reputed construction lender.

5. If any payment bond has been recorded pursuant to section 33-1003, a copy of the bond and the name and address of the surety company and bonding agent, if any, providing the payment bond.

If the owner or other interested party fails to furnish the requested information, this does not excuse the claimant from timely giving a preliminary twenty-day notice, but it does stop the owner from raising as a defense any inaccuracy of the information in a preliminary twenty-day notice, (provided the claimant's preliminary twenty day notice of lien otherwise complies with the provisions of the lien law). AZ. REV. STAT. 33-922.01(J). Also, if the information is received by the claimant after the claimant has already given a preliminary twenty-day notice and the information contained in the preliminary twenty day notice is inaccurate, the claimant shall, within thirty days of the receipt of this information, give an amended preliminary twenty day notice.

Christine A. said: So far do good. Don't understand the billing procedure yet and have just sent a request for information. Awaiting reply. Thank you, Christine Alvarez

Reply from Staff: Thanks for the feedback. Looks like your E-recording invoice is available. It takes a few minutes for our staff to prepare documents for recording and generate the invoice.

Gary K. said: Straightforward and pretty easy to use. The only downside is that there is no way to contact them directly. The number on the website is answered only by a voicemail with no return calls. Pricing seems fair compared to other services and much more efficient that filing "over the counter."

Lanette H. said: I liked getting the forms but I was charged twice for some reason. I'm not sure what happened with that. Can you reimburse me? Thank you. Lanette

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Lanette. In review, it looks like your first payment was declined, second one was approved and processed. What you are seeing is one payment and a hold placed by your financial institution for the declined attempt. We are not sure why they do this but the hold usually falls off after a few day depending on their policy. If you have further questions about this you can contact your financial institution and they will explain. Have a great day.
