(a) A lien does not extend to work, whether or not the work is authorized by a direct
contractor or subcontractor, if the work is not included in a direct contract or a
modification of that contract, and the claimant had actual knowledge or constructive
notice of the provisions of that contract or modification before providing the work.
(b) The filing of a contract or modification of that contract with the county recorder,
before the commencement of a work of improvement, is constructive notice of the provisions
of the contract or modification to a person providing work on that work of improvement.
