This number must be included in the document along with the project address (and/or legal property description), the name and company information of the entity that had the lien filed and is now removing. If you created the lien affidavit with Texas Easy Lien, you will just need your Document number to create your lien release, all other information required has been saved with your project.

After the claim has been sent to the General Contractor and Bond Company, you cannot file suit on a bond claim for the first sixty days (60).

If you fail to file suit within this time period, your claim against the bond will expire.
