Nebraska Notice of Termination

Construction liens are governed under the Nebraska Construction Lien Act, found at Sections 52-125 to 52-159 of the Nebraska Revised Statutes.

In Nebraska, a contracting owner may terminate a notice of commencement as to all or any identified portion of the real estate subject to the notice of commencement by recording a notice of termination. Neb. Rev. Stat. 52-146(1).

The notice of termination must contain the following:
1) The information required for a notice of commencement (See Neb. Rev. Stat. 52-145);
2) A reference to the recorded notice of commencement by its record location and a statement of its date of recording;
3) A statement of the date as of which the notice of commencement is terminated which date may not be earlier than thirty (30) days after the notice of termination is recorded; and
4) If the notice of termination is to apply only to a portion of the real estate subject to the notice of commencement, a statement of that fact and a description of the portion of the real estate to which the notice of termination applies. Id.

Note that, in addition to the content requirements, the form must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. File the completed notice with the county recorder's office within the bounds of the county where the property is located.
