Anyone who furnishes labor, professional services, materials, or equipment for the improvement of real property in Washington state is qualified to file a mechanics lien. However, parties who did not contract directly with the owner are required to send a Notice to Owner in order to secure lien rights. Parties who don’t protect the right to file a lien by sending notice to owner (a type of preliminary notice) are left with little recourse in the event of nonpayment.
