(In fact, quite often after owners discover the value of Prelien notices they ask for notices from other contractors on their project!).
- Notice of Intent. This is a warning to the property owner that a serious payment problem exists. Along with impressing the urgency to resolve a payment issue and the likely consequence of non-payment, Advantage Lien Protection Notices are polite and to the point.
