On Thursday, August 16, NACM Credit Services will host Jodie McDougal, a construction
law and litigation
attorney at the Davis Brown Law Firm, as she examines Iowa's new Mechanic's Lien Law. The presentation will be held at noon
at the Okoboji Grill in Johnston.
As part of the discussion, Jodie will explain the Secretary of State's new
online registry, which will be used for filing all mechanic's liens and
pre-lien notices. She will also address the new pre-lien notice requirements
applicable to many residential remodelers, general contractors, and
subcontractors/suppliers; pre-lien notices must be filed in order to preserve
one's right to later file a mechanic's lien.
