The deadline to file a mechanic’s lien depends on a contractor’s role and the type of project.
For Commercial Projects (Private), the following charts specify the required documents and the last date to submit them.
We have separated the charts by type of contractor. It is essential to know that the last day to file or submit a lien document is always the 15th day of every month.
