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).

Review: I am an attorney who was trying to draft some deeds in arizona. The deed templates coupled with the document instructions saved me hours work. At 1st I was skeptical, so spent hours figuring out how to draft the documents, but could have saved so much time If I had just spend the $20 sooner. Would use again is needed a deed format as a basis for my drafting.

Review: I believe you need more instruction on the use of the web site. I would type and nothing would appear on the form. When I tried to save a completed form I ended with a blank form with no detail.

Review: This is a very useful site for downloading legal forms - just be sure you're getting the form you need before buying. Unfortunately I selected the wrong form initially and had to buy a 2nd form to correct my error. I saw no way of communicating my error at that point - i.e., loss of one star.

Review: Really solid system for determining what may prevent your documents from being accepted. I love the comments section allowing for fluid communication. I only wish there were automated emails for all those communications and once documents were accepted, but I did receive a couple personally-generated emails regarding the progress instructing me to check the site.

Review: Since the recorder's office is closed, due to Covid, this worked well to submit my Quit Claim Deed. I was a bit confused with the direction and download. But, I think I got her done! We'll see if I get recorded and confirmation is received. I may be back
