What is the Georgia Preliminary Notice of Mechanics Lien

Georgia Mechanic's Lien on your mind? First file your preliminary notice!

In many states, claimants must file a document known as a "preliminary" or "pre-lien" notice as a prerequisite to securing mechanic's lien rights. Georgia does not adhere to this requirement, so forgetting to file preliminary notice won't cost the claimant's lien rights. Under Georgia law, however, a person with a lien right may, at his or her option, file a preliminary notice. O.G.C.A. 44-14-361.3.

Preliminary notices are used by subcontractors and material suppliers who are not under a direct contract with the owner. A preliminary notice form follows a simple format that must include: (1) the name, address, and telephone number of the potential lien claimant; (2) the name and address of the contractor or other person at whose instance the labor, services, or materials were furnished; (3) the name of the owner of the real estate and include a description sufficient to identify the real estate against which the lien is or may be claimed; and (4) include a general description of the labor, services, or materials furnished or to be furnished. O.G.C.A. 44-14-361.3(a)(2)---(5).

The preliminary notice of lien rights must be filed with the clerk of superior court of the county in which the real estate is located within thirty (30) days after the date a party delivered any materials or provided any labor or services for which a lien may be claimed. O.G.C.A. 44-14-361.3(a)(1).

The Notice must also be served after filing on either the owner or contractor. A party filing a preliminary notice of lien rights (except a contractor) shall, within seven (7) days of filing the notice, send by registered or certified mail or statutory overnight delivery a copy of the notice to the contractor on the property named in the notice or to the owner of the property. The lien claimant may rely on the building permit issued on the property for the name of the contractor. O.G.C.A. 44-14-361.3(b).

As stated earlier, the preliminary notice is not a required document. A person having a lien may enforce the lien without filing a preliminary notice of lien. O.G.C.A. 44-14-361.3(d). However, filing and serving preliminary notice on an owner or prime contractor is good practice and can help preserve your lien rights, especially when there are multiple claimants.

Had used website while working as Land Rep for major oil company (retired 2.5 years ago). Recently had need to do some online research and went back to Deeds.com to find needed documents. Same as before, website provides a great service at a great price.

The process sure was easy and fast. Not sure why a rep would question why I am requesting an exhibit page on the Deed when that's a common practice here in AZ. They recorded it the way I sent it so all good.

Forms & Guide easy to use. It would have been helpful if the counties with identical form packages were identified. I bought two packages when I could have used one.
