                                          ATTENTION!

Upon the recording of the enclosed Construction Lien with the county recorder’s office of the
county where the property is located, your property is subject to the filing of a legal action
seeking a court-ordered foreclosure sale of the real property on which the lien has been recorded.
That legal action must be filed with the court no later than 90 days after the date the construction
lien is recorded.

The party identified in the Construction Lien as the Claimant may have provided labor or
materials for improvements to your property and may not have been paid for these items. You
are receiving this notice because it is a required step in filing a Construction Lien foreclosure
action against your property. The foreclosure action will seek a sale of your property in order to
pay for unpaid labor, materials, or improvements provided to your property. This may affect
your ability to borrow against, refinance, or sell the property until the construction lien is
released.

BECAUSE THE LIEN AFFECTS YOUR PROPERTY, YOU MAY WISH TO SPEAK WITH
YOUR CONTRACTOR IMMEDIATELY, OR CONTACT AN ATTORNEY, OR FOR MORE
INFORMATION ON CONSTRUCTION LIENS GO TO THE CONTRACTORS’ STATE
LICENSE BOARD.
