What is a notice of commencement?
A Notice of Commencement is a recorded statement executed by the owner of property, which identifies the name and address of the owner and requires that all persons that furnish labor and materials for the subject property to send a Notice to Owner. By recording a Notice of Commencement, the owner can require the general contractor to supply releases of lien from all persons that have served a "Notice to Owner." Construction must be commenced within ninety (90) days from the date that the Notice of Commencement had been recorded. The Notice of Commencement is effective for one (1) year after it is recorded unless otherwise provided.
