No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

Subcontractors, vendors, and design professionals involved in a work of improvement must send a special type of notice when they have not contracted directly with the original contractor or property owner and are working under another party. This preserves these individual's rights to a mechanic's lien while letting the owner know who is involved in the job and may have a later claim if unpaid.

In Massachusetts, a lien claimant without a direct contractual relationship with the original contractor, except for liens for labor, can only claim an amount of lien less than or equal to the amount due or to become due under the subcontract between the original contractor and the subcontractor whose work includes the work of the person claiming the lien. M.G.L. Ch. 254, 4. However, if the claimant files a Notice of Identification within thirty (30) days of commencement of his performance, lien rights are preserved for the full amount of services or materials expended. Id.

The Notice of Identification contains the following information: 1) contractor's name; 2) name of the party sending the notice; 3) whether the claimant is a subcontractor, vendor, or design professional; 4) name of the person contracted with; 5) name of the person or party furnished; 6) the property address where work is performed; and 7) the amount of the contract. Id. The Notice must be sent via certified mail, return receipt requested, to the original contractor within thirty (30) days of starting performance.

The amount stated in any such notice of identification shall not limit the amount of the lien. Id. Any inaccuracy in the naming of the contractor or other information in such notice shall not affect its validity provided there is actual notice. Id.

Deeds.com made this process of electronic document recording so easy! The communication was quick, friendly, helpful and efficient. I am out of state and have administrative items to handle for my father who has Alzheimer's. Deeds.com is a great service. I highly recommend them, and will use them again when the time comes.

I have used these forms now at least 3 times in order to sell the same parcel of land. The forms are great and I'm happy that I could use them more than once. To no fault of Deeds.com I used them many times to sell the same land. First the man died that was buying, before it got recorded. Then his wife was going to finish it, but then decided it should be sold to another party who was a friend of hers.
