Subcontractor Lien Claims in Wisconsin

Subcontractors must provide preliminary notice to the owner of a property to claim a mechanic’s lien to recover any owed funds. This step is required to protect the owner from any hidden liens by informing he or she of all the parties involved in a construction project.

Every person other than a prime contractor (including a subcontractor) who performs, furnishes, or procures labor, materials, plans, or specifications for an improvement is entitled to have the lien and remedy only if within sixty (60) days after performing, furnishing, or procuring the first labor, services, materials, plans, or specifications the person serves two signed copies of a written notice, on the owner or authorized agent at the last-known post-office address. Wis. Stat. §779.02(2)(b).

The owner or agent shall provide a copy of the notice received, within ten (10) days after receipt, to any mortgage lender who is furnishing or is to furnish funds for construction of the improvement to which the notice relates. Id.

Cathleen H. said: The pdf form is good; however, the input boxes merge into the line above so the text is hard to read when complete. I added a return before entering my data and this solved the problem.

Dennis T. said: I liked the service very much. The form I ordered wasn't provided by the local government agency and I couldn't find it on the internet. I liked that the form came with easy to follow, line by line, instructions and a sample. I also appreciated that I wasn't forced to take on a trial membership to keep me on the hook. I would definitely use this service again in the future!
