We can prepare, print, record and provide notarization of a number of forms including the Notice Of Commencement (NOC) and Notice Of Termination.
A Notice of Commencement is a legal document used in the construction industry to officially declare the beginning of a construction project. It is typically filed by the property owner or the general contractor and serves as public notice that a construction project is about to start on a specific property.
The main purpose of a Notice of Commencement is to protect the rights of subcontractors, suppliers, and other parties who may have a financial interest in the project. By filing this notice, these parties are informed about the project's commencement and can take necessary steps to protect their lien rights.
When a Notice of Commencement is filed, it usually includes important details about the construction project, such as:
Project location: The address and legal description of the property where the construction will take place.
Owner information: The name and contact details of the property owner.
General contractor information: The name and contact details of the main contractor responsible for overseeing the project.
Surety bond information: If applicable, details about the surety bond that may have been obtained for the project.
Property description: A detailed description of the construction project or scope of work to be performed.
Recording date: The date when the notice is officially filed with the appropriate local authority, such as the county clerk's office.
Once the Notice of Commencement is filed and recorded, subcontractors and suppliers can then submit a Notice to Owner (or Preliminary Notice) to the property owner and general contractor, indicating their involvement in the project and their intention to seek payment for their services and materials.
It is essential for all parties involved in a construction project to be aware of and adhere to the legal requirements related to Notices of Commencement and Notices to Owners to protect their rights and avoid potential payment disputes. Requirements and regulations surrounding these notices may vary by location, so it's important to consult local laws and seek legal advice if needed.
NOC forms can be downloaded in most cases from your county clerk's site for FREE. If not, we can prepare a Notice of commencements and furnish a mobile notary to assist in execution.
