What do I need to file a construction lien?

To prepare a lien affidavit, you will need the general information of the project and your contract. Below is a list of most of the information that is most needed to file a lien.

Project Information: Owner, name of project, common address (or legal property description), county where the project is located.
For Subcontractors: Name (or company name) and mailing address of the General (Prime) Contractor.
For Sub-subcontractors: It is not required but preferred to have the name and mailing address of all Subcontractors involved in the contract chain.
Work: Invoice dates, description of the unpaid work performed and the amount owed per each individual month.
