CHAPTER 2. Preliminary Notice [8200 - 8216] (Chapter 2 added by Stats. 2010, Ch. 697, Sec. 20.)

8216. If the contract of any subcontractor on a particular work of improvement provides for payment to the subcontractor of more than four hundred dollars ($400), the failure of that subcontractor, licensed under the Contractors’ State License Law (Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 7000) of Division 3 of the Business and Professions Code), to give the notice provided for in this chapter, constitutes grounds for disciplinary action under the Contractors’ State License Law.

Who Needs the Preliminary Notice Form for Private Works Projects

The Preliminary Notice form for Private Works Projects is needed by Subcontractors, Direct Contractors, Suppliers, and Service Providers to protect their lien rights on construction projects.

If an entity that is required to do the preliminary notice doesn't do it, then its lien rights may be lost as well as rights to other remedies such as stop payment notices, bonds, etc.

And if a California contractor doesn't do a preliminary notice, he/she is subject to discipline by the California State License Board (CSLB).

It's easy to do it when you do it here and remember, you are guaranteed to LOVE these forms or you get your money back.


We guarantee you that our form templates will meet your needs. If, through our error, any document purchased from us is not accepted by your customer, relevant court, or other entity, we will correct the form for you, at no charge, or issue you a full refund, whichever you prefer.
