NOTICE TO OWNER
PROPOSAL AND CONTRACT, LIMITED LABOR WARRANTY
Page 6 of 6
Under the California Mechanic’s Lien Law, any contractor, subcontractor, laborer, supplier, or other person or entity that helps to improve your property, but is not paid for his or her work or supplies, has a right to place a lien on your home, land, or property where the work was performed and to sue you in court to obtain payment.
This means that after a court hearing, your home, land, and property could be sold by court officer and the proceeds of the sale used to satisfy what your owe. This can happen even if you have paid your contractor in full, if the contractor’s subcontractors, laborers, or suppliers remain unpaid.
To preserve their rights to file a claim or lien against your property certain claimants such as subcontractors or material suppliers are each required to provide you with a document called a “preliminary Notice.” Contractors and laborers who contract with owners directly do not have to provide such notice, since you are aware of their existence as an owner. A preliminary notice is not a lien against your property; its purpose is to notify you of persons or entities that may have a right to file a lien against your property if they are not paid. In order to perfect their lien rights, a contractor, subcontractor, supplier, or laborer must file a Mechanics’ lien with the county recorder which then becomes a recorded lien against your property. Generally, the maximum time allowed for filing a mechanics’ lien against your property is 90 days after substantial completion of your project.
To insure extra protection for yourself and your property, you may wish to take one or more of the following steps:
1) Require that your contractor supply you with a payment and performance bond (not a license bond), which provides that the bonding company will either complete the project or pay damages up to the amount of the bond. This payment and performance bond as well as a copy of the construction contract should be filed with the county recorder for your further protection. The payment and performance bond will usually cost from 1 to 5 percent of the contract amount depending on the contractor’s bonding ability. If a contractor cannot obtain such bonding, it may indicate his or her financial incapacity.
2) Require that payments be made directly to subcontractors and material suppliers, through a joint control. Funding services may be available, for a fee, in your area which will establish voucher or other means of payments to your contractor. These services may also provide you with a lien waiver and other forms of protection. Any joint control agreement should include the addendum approved by the registrar.
3) Issue joint checks for payment, made out to both your contractor and subcontractors or material suppliers involved in the project. The joint checks should be made payable to the persons or entities which send preliminary notices to you. Those persons entities have indicated that they may have lien rights on your property, therefore need to protect yourself. This will
help to insure that all persons due payment are actually paid.
4) Upon making payment on any completed phase of the project, and before making any further payments, require your contractor to provide you with unconditional Waiver and Release forms signed by each material supplier, subcontractor, and laborer involved in that portion of the work for which payment was made. The statutory lien releases are set forth in exact language in Section 3262 of the Civil Code. Most stationery stores will sell the Waiver and Release forms if your contractor does not have them. The material suppliers, subcontractors, and laborers that you obtain releases form are those persons or entities who have filed preliminary notices with you. If you are not certain of the material suppliers, subcontractors, and laborers working on your project, you may obtain a list from your contractor. On projects involving improvements to a single family residence or a duplex owned by individuals, the persons signing these releases lose the right to file a mechanics’ lien claim against your property. In other types of construction, this protection may still be important, but may not be as complete.
To protect yourself under this option, you must be certain that all material suppliers, subcontractors, and laborers have signed the Waiver and Release form. If a mechanics’ lien has been filed against your property, it can only be voluntarily released by a recorded Release of Mechanics’ Lien signed by the person or entity that filed the mechanic’s lien against your property unless the lawsuit to enforce the lien was not timely filed. You should not make any final payments until any and all such liens are removed. You should consult an attorney if a lien is filed against your property.
State law requires anyone who contracts to do construction work to be licensed by the Contractors State License Board in the category in which the contractor is going to be working – if the total price of the job is $300 or more (including labor and materials).
Licensed contractors are regulated by laws designed to protect the public. If you contract with someone who does not have a license, the Contractors’ State License Board may be unable to assist you with a complaint. Our only remedy against an unlicensed contractor may be in a civil court, and you may be liable for damages arising out of any injuries to the contractor or his or her employees.
You may contact the Contractors’ State License Board to find out if this contractor has a valid license. The board has complete information on the history of licensed contractors, including possible suspensions, revocations, judgments, and citations.
