NRS 108.227 - Service of copy of notice of lien.


NV Rev Stat § 108.227 (2013) What's This?

1. In addition to the requirements of NRS 108.226, a copy of the notice of lien must be served upon the owner of the property within 30 days after recording the notice of lien, in one of the following ways:

(a) By personally delivering a copy of the notice of lien to the owner or registered agent of the owner;

(b) By mailing a copy of the notice of lien by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the owner at the owner s place of residence or the owner s usual place of business or to the registered agent of the owner at the address of the registered agent; or

(c) If the place of residence or business of the owner and the address of the registered agent of the owner, if applicable, cannot be determined, by:

(1) Fixing a copy of the notice of lien in a conspicuous place on the property;

(2) Delivering a copy of the notice of lien to a person there residing, if such a person can be found; and

(3) Mailing a copy of the notice of lien addressed to the owner at:

(I) The place where the property is located;

(II) The address of the owner as identified in the deed;

(III) The address identified in the records of the office of the county assessor; or

(IV) The address identified in the records of the county recorder of the county in which the property is located.

2. If there is more than one owner, failure to serve a copy of the notice of lien upon a particular owner does not invalidate a notice of lien if properly served upon another owner.

3. Each subcontractor who participates in the construction, improvement, alteration or repair of a work of improvement shall deliver a copy of each notice of lien required by NRS 108.226 to the prime contractor. The failure of a subcontractor to deliver the notice to the prime contractor is a ground for disciplinary proceedings pursuant to chapter 624 of NRS.
