I.C. 572.8(1).

The verified statement must include: 1) the date when such material was first furnished or labor first performed, and the date on which the last of the material was furnished or the last of the labor was performed; 2) the legal description of the property to be charged with the lien; and 3) the name and last known mailing address of the owner of the property. Id. Once the lien is filed, the clerk of court will mail a copy of the lien to the owner. 572.8(2).

Finally able to print out the forms after a few tries. Honestly, I think it could have been designed a little better. I am almost 80; however, very computer savvy, but finally managed to get what I needed.
