Many states, including Oklahoma, mandate that a contractor, subcontractor, or other service provider first serve a preliminary notice on a property owner in order to preserve the rights to claim a mechanic's lien. The purpose of such notice is to make the owner aware of the parties involved in their construction job, which in turn protects the property from any "hidden liens" filed claimants who later come out of the woodwork. As is often the case in construction jobs, contractors employ persons below them who could have a lien claim even if the owner paid the first contractor in full.

In Oklahoma, prior to filing a lien statement, no later than seventy-five (75) days after the last date of supply of material, services, labor, or equipment in which the claimant is entitled or may be entitled to lien rights, the claimant must send to the last-known address of the original contractor and an owner of the property a pre-lien notice. O.S. 142.6(B)(1). No lien affecting property occupied as a dwelling by an owner will be valid unless the pre-lien notice was sent within seventy-five (75) days of the last furnishing of materials, services, labor or equipment by the claimant. Id.

The pre-lien notice must be in writing and contain the following: (1) a statement that the notice is a pre-lien notice, (2) the complete name, address, and telephone number of the claimant, or the claimant's representative, (3) the date of supply of material, services, labor, or equipment, (4) a description of the material, services, labor, or equipment, (5) the name and last-known address of the person who requested that the claimant provide the material, services, labor, or equipment, (6) the address, legal description, or location of the property to which the material, services, labor, or equipment has been supplied, (7) a statement of the dollar amount of the material, services, labor, or equipment furnished or to be furnished, and (8) the signature of the claimant, or the claimant's representative. O.S. 142.6(B)(4).

The claimant may also request in writing, that the original contractor provide to the claimant the name and last-known address of an owner of the property. O.S. 142.6(B)(6). Failure of the original contractor to provide the claimant with the information requested within five (5) days from the date of receipt of the request shall render the pre-lien notice requirement to the owner of the property unenforceable. Id.

The claimant must also furnish to the county clerk at the time of the filing of the lien statement a notarized affidavit verifying compliance with the pre-lien notice requirements. O.S. 142.6(C). Any claimant who falsifies the affidavit will be guilty of a misdemeanor, punished by a fine of not more than $5000, or by imprisonment for a maximum of thirty days. Id.

Sending the preliminary notice is vital to protect lien rights. Failure by the claimant to comply with the pre-lien notice requirements will invalidate that portion of the lien claim without notice. O.S. 142.6(D). Therefore, by complying with the notice statute, potential claimants ensure their lien rights will be available if ever needed.

Very good information. Easy access and easy to download. All the forms needed for TOD to be notarized and recorded with the county office. Much better than working with a Trust and the expense of lawyers, especially when several parties are involved and the owner of said property knows exactly to whom the property should go. Having forms and instructions available for the public to have their wishes recorded and confirmed makes handling final planning much easier and prevents family members from having the unnecessary task of going through court to solve property distribution issues. Thank you for this site and the forms you provide. I will recommend Deeds.com to those I know who are making final plans.

It was easy to download. And your guide was informative as was the completed form for an example. But I wish that I had been able to edit the forms online and then print.

My handwritten info is just not as crisp.
