All subcontractors and materialmen, except those having a direct contract with the owner or providing subdivision improvements must comply with the Construction Lien Law’s notice to owner requirements in order to enforce a construction lien.
There is a complicated exception for any claimant who performs services or furnishes materials to real property for the purpose of subdivision improvements. Subcontractors and materialmen involved in subdivision improvements, although not required to do so, should always serve a notice to owner in order to obtain payment priorities in certain situations.
