A Notice of Intent to Lien is a formal document signed by the potential lienholder to the property owner to warn the latter about the former's intention to submit a Claim of Lien. Contractors and builders exercise their lien rights by filing documentation with state and local authorities to put a lien on motor vehicles, houses, apartments, and other valuable items they worked on.
Before this step is made, consider completing a Notice of Intent to Lien form. It does not necessarily mean you will receive a payment within a few days, and most states do not have a legal requirement to notify the property owner or manager about the potential lien. However, this measure can be very effective - a Notice of Intent to Lien will remind the breaching party about their responsibility to pay you back - otherwise, their property, be it real estate or vehicle, will have an outstanding lien, which makes its future transfer almost impossible and confirms their debt officially.
