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).

Very easy to use and no hidden costs. You get to download whatever you need and can save it and even reuse it. So it's like having your own library of form that you pay for once. They even give you more related forms than you ask for and it turned out we needed some if those forms as well. The forms meet what our county requires for margins in records and so on. So I will use deeds.com again when I need a different kind of legal form.

I thought this form was great and easy to complete but the instructions were unclear as to whether the grantee- beneficiaries needed to sign and notarize their signatures as well. It did not appear to be the case but it would be helpful if the instructions spelled this out better.

Working with one document at a time every thing was great, but the program will not let multiple documents save independently. When I saved a document and created another document the changes I made on the second document were on the 1st document. No big deal if your printing, but if your saving to email later, its an issue.

Great site with great info. Almost made the job seamless but form would not adjust to my longer than usual legal description -- I ended up having to recreate the form in word processing software (Libre). But could not have done it without the guidelines.

The Deeds.com site made is relatively simple to download a Beneficiary Deed form specific to St Louis, which is great, because neither the city or state provide this. Thanks!
