What is the Massachusetts Notice of Substantial Completion

In Massachusetts, a Notice of Substantial Completion must be filed or recorded with the registry of deeds upon or after the contract has reached substantial completion. M.G.L. Ch. 254, 2(a). "Substantial completion" occurs when the work under the written contract is sufficiently complete so that it can be occupied or utilized for its intended use. Id.

The Notice of Substantial Completion contains the date of the written contact, names of the owner and contractor, and a legal property description sufficient for identification. Id.

The owner also signs the Notice and states that he has served a copy of the Notice upon every person who has filed or recorded a Notice of Contract. Id

A copy of the Notice, indicating the date of filing or recording, must also be mailed by the owner, via certified mail with return receipt requested, to every person who has filed a Notice of Contract. Id. Additionally, the contractor must serve a copy to every person who has entered into a written contract directly with the contractor as well as to every person who has given a written Notice of Identification to the contractor. Id.

The failure of the owner or contractor to give notice of the filing or recording of the Notice of Substantial Completion to the persons entitled shall not prejudice the rights of any third parties who rely upon it in good faith and without actual knowledge of such failure of notice. Id.

I needed to add my partner to my warranty deed and deeds.com made it easy to understand what form I needed, attached a great explanation of the form and a sample of the form filled out. Couldn\'t be happier. In fact I\'m researching a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed now and they\'ve given me the confidence to rewrite my own will on my own.

I used the Quitclaim form. The form was easy to complete without using the example or guide. $21 was a fair price compared to paying a lawyer.

When I found this website, I was confused and hesitant to use this website to submit paperwork that needed to be submitted to the Clerks of Courts in Miami. I am glad I decided to go through with it. It was the easiest process I have encountered even with working with the City. Highly recommend as it is super easy to use and received that everything was approved and recorded in two working days. Thank you so much for bringing my stress level lower as many uncertainties of how to process my paperwork. Will use it again to finish my project as the City continues to not accept walk ins. Thank you so much.
