Preliminary Notice

Although it is not a legal requirement to send a Preliminary Notice, it is the best business practice to do so. Sending a Preliminary Notice advises all parties that you are working on the project and helps you get paid faster.

Notice of Unpaid Balance and Right to File Lien (NUB)
60 days from last furnishing

Notice of Unpaid Balance and Right to File Lien (NUB)

A Notice of Unpaid Balance and Right to File Lien (NUB) is only for Residential Projects. SunRay works with a NJ Construction Law Firm that assists with Filing these Liens.

1. The Notice of Unpaid Balance and Right to File Lien also called NUB, must be started before the 60th day from the last furnishing of labor and/or materials. It is important to file the NUB as soon as you can because the process to file the lien can take some time. Best business practice is to file the NUB by the 40th day from last furnishing labor and/or materials because the Demand for Arbitration needs to be received by the American Arbitration Association before the 60th day from the last furnishing date.

2.  The American Arbitration Association has 30 days to make a decision as to whether the subcontractor/supplier has lien rights and how much the subcontractor/supplier is entitled to lien for.  Once this determination is made by the American Arbitration Association, a lien must be filed with the courts within 10 days.  All of the above must happen within 120 days of the last furnishing of labor and/or materials.

3.  The lawsuit to establish a claim of lien must be filed either one year from the completion of work or within 30 days of the owner?s demand to initiate the lawsuit. Once the claim is resolved, you have 30 days to discharge the lien.
