This statutory form is for a subcontractor's preliminary (60-Day) notice requirement for Illinois Mechanic's Liens

In Illinois, eligible contractors must provide a property owner with the required forms of preliminary notice before leveraging a mechanic's lien. The notice forms include a 60-day and 90-day notice.

Under the state law, the contractor is required to provide the property owner with a statement in writing, made under oath or verified by affidavit, containing the names and addresses of all parties furnishing labor, services, material, fixtures, apparatus or machinery and of the amounts due or to become due to each before payment is made. 770 Ill. Comp. Stat. 60/5(a).

For residential jobs, there are additional requirements. Each subcontractor who has furnished, or is furnishing labor, services, or equipment shall notify the occupant either personally or by certified mail addressed to the occupant or his agent at the residence within 60 days from his first day of work on the job. 770 Ill. Comp. Stat. 60/5(b)(ii). The notice contains the name and address of the subcontractor or material man, the date he started to work or to deliver materials, the type of work requested and/or the type of labor, services, or materials delivered, and the name of the contractor requesting the work.

All parties without a direct contractual relation with the property owner (or his or her agent) and who provided labor or materials to an owner-occupied single-family residence must provide this 60-Day Notice. The claimant must verify the form as accurate and true. The notice must also be notarized by a notary who acknowledges the signature.

Finally, must serve the notice by personal service (such as using a process server) or by U.S. mail (sent certified with return receipt requested).

I was not able to add more linea to the deed and add up to four people and their addresses. The document should be able to be expanded.

My county clerks office referred me to this website and I am so glad she did. This site is very easy to use, they do NOT try to sell you other things you don't need (or want) nor do they make you sign up for anything. Pick what you need and whalaa - there for you in seconds.
Thank you so much - will use again should the need arise.

Clean crisp website with helpful information; however. If the site states the following files are included, a single .zip, .rar, , ,download should be available instead of individual.
