What Is a Preliminary Notice?

A preliminary notice is a type of construction notice sent by a party that’s receiving payment to the project owner and other top-tier project participants (such as the general contractor) that are involved with making payments. In many states, including California, sending preliminary notice is a required step in order to maintain the right to file a mechanics lien on a construction project (should a payment issue develop).
