What is the Iowa Notice to Primary Contractor?

Required Notices to Primary Contractor for Iowa Mechanic's Liens

Persons furnishing labor or materials to a subcontractor (sometimes referred to as "sub-subcontractors or even sub-sub-subcontractors depending on their position in the chain) must send notice to a primary contractor to inform of lien rights in order to preserve their ability to claim a lien.

A person furnishing labor or materials to a subcontractor is not entitled to a lien unless the person furnishing labor or materials notifies the principal contractor in writing with a one-time notice containing: 1) the name, mailing address, and telephone number of the person furnishing the labor or materials, and 2) the name of the subcontractor to whom the labor or materials were furnished, within thirty (30) days of first furnishing labor or materials for which a lien claim may be made. I.C. 572.33(1). Additional labor or materials furnished by the same person to the same subcontractor for use in the same construction project can be covered by this notice. Id.

The person furnishing labor or materials to the subcontractor must also support the lien claim with a certified statement that the principal contractor was notified in writing with the one-time notice described above. Id.

The notice requirement does not apply to a mechanic's lien on single-family or two-family dwellings occupied or used or intended to be occupied or used for residential purposes. I.C. 572.33(2).

Name: Sandra M.

Review: The forms were easy to use but there was a software issue that made it impossible to get the county name to appear on the form in the correct place. It made the deed look a little sloppy

Thank you!

Name: Sally Ann C.

Review: Thank you for your service. It seems to have worked, I printed a document purporting to be the Deed I needed. I was somewhat disappointed though - I was expecting something as impressive as the Title Search, which goes back to 1828 and includes Millard Fillmore, admittedly not one of our most celebrated Presidents. But I am happy to have what I have, and thank you again! peace - SAVC

Review: It just a little disconcerting that I was not able to preview any of the forms prior to purchasing them. Thank goodness they were the correct forms I needed. I would suggest being able to at least make the picture of the forms a little larger or give the capability to zoom in.

Review: I very much dreaded this whole endeavor but very pleasantly surprised. So far, so good. I feel much more confidant that the crucial form, when presented, will play well with the county.......

Review: 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."
