Construction Bond Claim

What is a Construction Bond Claim?

A Construction Bond claim (or a Bond Claim Notice)  is generally used to claim payment on a state, county or municipal construction project. Private projects can also be bonded. Lien rights do not apply to state-owned property as the state government won’t allow anyone to foreclose on its land.
