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.

The information and instructions provided is thorough and great. But, the fill-in-the-blanks form does not work well and is very frustrating. The font size of the information I was adding on each individual line varies and is determined by the number of characters entered on that individual line. So the font size is different on each line. And the number of lines is fixed making it impossible to fill in the full legal name of the trust I needed to fill out the form for. My needs are somewhat unusual, but the form should have been designed to be flexible enough to handle it. A blank paper form would have been more useful.

its a bit confusing for a novice computer user. I would prefer to print out the forms, fill them out on paper, then attach them to an email to discuss the accuracy of the forms with a friend, and then take the completed forms to the County office to be recorded

The service was fast and professional. So much easier than going to the courthouse. I recommend this to anyone who has to record documents at the Clerk's office.
