Remote Contractor Claims in Tennessee

Remote contractors who have not contracted directly with the owner, must send a special type of notice when they are not paid at time. In Tennessee, that notice is called the "Notice of Non-Payment."

Every remote contractor with respect to an improvement, except one-to-four-family residential units, shall serve, within ninety (90) days of the last day of each month within which work, material, or labor was provided, or machinery furnished and for which the remote contractor intends to claim a lien, a notice of nonpayment to the owner and prime contractor in contractual privity with the remote contractor if its account is, in fact, unpaid. Tenn. Prop. Code 66-11-145(a). Serve the notice via registered or certified US Mail, or any other service with official delivery confirmation.

The notice shall contain the following: (1) The name of the remote contractor and the address to which the owner and the prime contractor in contractual relation with the remote contractor may send communications to the remote contractor; (2) A general description of the work, labor, materials, services, equipment, or machinery provided; (3) The amount owed as of the date of the notice; (4) A statement of the last date the claimant performed work and/or provided labor or materials, services, equipment, or machinery in connection with the improvements; and (5) A description sufficient to identify the real property against which a lien may be claimed. Id.

If a remote contractor fails to provide the notice of nonpayment in compliance with the law, he or she may lose the right to claim a lien (except with regard to a certain amount or percentage of the contract amount retained to guarantee performance of the remote contractor). Tenn. Prop. Code 66-11-145(b). Even though the notice of nonpayment is a required step in the lien process, be aware that it is NOT the same notice required to fulfill a notice of an impending lien, which must be drafted and sent separately. Tenn. Prop. Code 66-11-145(c).

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

This makes it so easy and I'm so glad I found you.

I visited two other sites before I found this one. They were cumbersome to use to the point where I abandoned them and kept on looking. Then I found yours, and it was a breeze. Thank you so much!

I am an attorney who was trying to draft some deeds in arizona. The deed templates coupled with the document instructions saved me hours work. At 1st I was skeptical, so spent hours figuring out how to draft the documents, but could have saved so much time If I had just spend the $20 sooner. Would use again is needed a deed format as a basis for my drafting.

A good service that saves a lot of time and precludes making a trip to the County Assessors Office.

So far so good! I haven't had an opportunity to populate the forms but they seem to be very easy to do. The sample deed serves very well.
Ordering the forms were very easy, I was impressed with the ease of doing so.
