New Mechanic’s Lien Requirements in CA

According to a blurb in a recent issue of the California State License Board’s (CSLB) newsletter, recent changes to the California mechanic’s lien law will soon require contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to provide property owners with a Notice of Mechanic’s Lien. In addition, a Proof of Service Affidavit must also be completed, signed and delivered to the property owner. The new requirements will take effect January 1, 2011, and failure to comply with them will render the mechanic’s lien unenforceable.

The changes come about as a result of Assembly Bill 457, which can be read in its entirety here.
