This statutory form is meant for use by subcontractors or others who are not directly contracted for work with the property owner.

For residential, owner-occupied projects, the 90-day notice form is the second preliminary notice sent in anticipation of filing a lien (the 60-day notice must be served beforehand sent via certified mail within 60 days from the first furnishing). For a commercial project, the 90-day form is the first notice sent to the owner. Either way, both commercial and residential jobs require the 90-day notice prior to filing a lien. 770 Ill. Comp. Stat. 60/24(a).

The 90-day notice is a demand for payment that must be sent by all contractors, subcontractors, laborers, and material/equipment suppliers who have not directly contracted with the owner or the owner's agent. Note that all eligible workers must send the notice within 90 days after the final furnishing of work or delivery of materials to the jobsite. Id. Any substantial additional or extra work can enlarge the time, but mere corrections of previously completed work will not affect the end date. Be aware the time is 90 days, not three months, so count 90 days from the date labor or materials were last furnished.

Serve the notice either through personal service by using a process server, or use the easier and less expensive option of certified mail. The notice does not have to be recorded but keep track of all dates and confirmations of receipt of service to help create a paper trail if a lien becomes necessary. If the deadlines are near, consider a process server. If mailing, serve the notice by certified mail, return receipt requested on the owner, the mortgage lenders, and the general contractor.

The 90-day notice must be verified which means the contractor's signature represents the contents of the notice are accurate and true. The notice must also be notarized by signing it in front of a licensed Notary Public who affixes his or her seal to the document.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

I found a lot of useful information regarding the Lady Bird Deed and feel it will serve my needs as opposed to a Revocable
Living
Trust. The information was easy to understand and very helpful. The forms seem easy to complete and I plan to get them notarized and filed at the courthouse very soon.

Price seemed high (~$28) for just some forms (especially because we may not actually use the forms), but it beats navigating the Hawaii state and Honolulu county websites for forms. It would be better if a single button push would download all 7 or 8 forms.

Best Way EVER to record a warranty deed! It was nice to not have to drive anywhere and find the facility closed or "unable to process due to covid19 and buildings being closed". The correspondence between me and deeds.com was very timely in our back and forth email correspondence, and the processing was all finished in a timely manner. Totally worth the extra $15 that I paid in addition to the recording fee. I would use this again and again. My time and the efficiency of the job completed is worth the money.
