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.
