What is the California Notice of Completion?

The California Notice of Completion also referred to as a Certificate of Completion, is the form that the Owner (or manager, etc.) of a construction project serves on all lien claimants (including potential), who performed construction on a particular project and/or provided materials for that construction project, that the project is complete.

Construction contractors and suppliers have legally imposed deadline dates for filing mechanic's liens on projects should they not get paid, and when the Owner of the project correctly records a notice of completion and serves all claimants within the required timeframe, the length of time that the lien claimants are allowed to file/record a lien is reduced.

Sometimes the Direct Contractor on the project will file the notice of completion for the owner. In this situation, it's a good idea for the Owner to follow up on it and make sure it's done properly.

This notice is not required by California law unless an Owner wishes to reduce the time allowed for a lien to be filed. Therefore, if an Owner does NOT properly record and serve a notice of completion, the only "penalty" is that the lien timeframe is not reduced.
