Strict Procedures for Wyoming Mechanics Liens







There are several notice requirements required in Wyoming that must be strictly followed. Every prime contractor or subcontractor must give an initial notice with regard to a newly constructed single-family home. This notice must be given within 30 days and must be received by the owner or its agent. This notice with regard to residential property is a condition to being able to file a lien in Wyoming.

On all types of projects, the “right to claim a lien” must be provided to the prime contractor no later than 60 days after the date on which services or materials are first furnished. This notice requirement pertains to projects on which the prime contractor’s contract is valued at $50,000.00 or more.

Thereafter, before the actual filing of a lien, all contractors, subcontractors, and material must give 10 days’ notice to an owner of their intent to file a lien essentially stating the amount of the lien claim and from whom it is due. The 90 and 120 day time periods begin to run from the last day from when work was performed or materials furnished under a contract or the date the work was substantially completed or there was substantial completion on the contract to furnish materials, whichever is earlier.












  
 Mechanics’ liens on private property must be filed within 120 days of the last date the lienor provided materials or services to the project. Lower tier subcontractors have 90 days. The 90 and 120 day time periods begin to run from the last day from when work was performed or materials furnished under a contract or the date the work was substantially completed or there was substantial completion on the contract to furnish materials, whichever is earlier.
