Notice to Owner -- Preliminary Notice in Kentucky

Most states require lien claimants to serve a preliminary (pre-lien) notice on a property owner or other party to ensure all interested parties have notification of who is involved in a construction job and who may have a claim to a mechanic's lien. In Kentucky, the Notice to Owner document fulfills this purpose.

No person who has not contracted directly with the owner or his agent is eligible to acquire a lien unless he notifies the owner (or his authorized agent) of the property to be held liable, in writing, within seventy-five (75) days on claims amounting to less than $1,000 and one hundred twenty (120) days on claims in excess of $1,000 after the last item of material or labor is furnished, of his intention to hold the property liable and the amount for which he will claim a lien. K.R.S. 376.010(3).

It shall be sufficient to prove that the notice was mailed to the last known address of the owner of the property upon which the lien is claimed, or to his duly authorized agent within the county in which the property to be held liable is located. Id.

The Notice to Owner document contains the following information: 1) Name and address of the potential lien claimant; 2) Address of the subject property; 3) Name of the owner; 4) Value of materials or labor furnished; and 5) Date of last furnishing. The document also contains a Certificate of Delivery detailing the person serving the notice, the method of service, and date of service. The Certificate must be signed to affirm service was made in the described manner.

This article is provided for information purposes only and should not be relied on as a substitute for the advice from a legal professional. If you have questions about preliminary notice, or any other issues related to liens in Kentucky, please speak with a licensed attorney.

Order Process: 5 Stars - very easy
Material Received: 2 Stars
Issues:
1. Printing- Document would not print in format displayed. Format would continually shrink to approx 2/3 size thus not useable for formal doc submission to County Records office.
2. Document Format- Data insertion fields (addresses) were not of correct size for data input. I needed a 4 line input space but was limited to only 3 lines. Also, Date field (year) was mis-oriented in-so-much that the 3rd digit (inputted) overlapped on 2nd digit (pre-printed) and also was of noticeably different font.
3. Useability- Hand-written input space provided (for Notary) was deficient in space and spacing. It was a challenge to utilize the space available to complete fully and maintain legibility.

Overall - the document worked marginally as advertised, I did need to re-write the entire document myself. It is a good concept but I'd recommend that Deeds company improve the downloaded forms for actual useability, readability, functionability.
regards,

Great resource! Wish you could expand to more than just deeds, but then you would have to rename it. :)

The transfer deed documents are laid out the way county offices need, but I don't like the requirements so I'm going to leave a bad review.

Well, thanks we guess.

Most people coming to this sight will not have the knowledge for deeds. Therefore, I wish there were more instructions on when the Grantor signs and when the Grantee signs and the process steps to making the transaction final. I would give it 4 out of 5 starts
