Residential Repair or Remodel:
At any time. However, we recommend sending the Notice as soon as possible because the amount recoverable will be limited to the amount the owner owes the general contractor (or the general contractor owes the subcontractor) at the time the owner or general contractor receives the claimant’s final notice. In addition, the claim of a person supplying labor or materials to a subcontractor cannot exceed the amount for which the subcontractor could file its claim.
