Note to Lien Claimant:  This form, if filled out correctly and sent within the time periods specified in W.S. 29-2-112, constitutes prima facie evidence that you have provided the content of the notice required by W.S. 29-2-112(a)(i).  If you have any questions regarding how to fill out this form or whether it has been filled out properly, you should consult an attorney.

NOTICE TO OWNER

The undersigned party is providing work or materials to the property described below.  Failure of payment due and owing to a contractor, subcontractor or materialman for work performed or materials provided to the project located on the property can result in the filing of a lien against the property.  To avoid this result, when paying for labor and materials you may ask the contractor, subcontractor or materialman for “lien waivers” from all persons supplying materials or services.  Failure to secure lien waivers may result in your paying for labor and materials twice.  A form of lien waiver is attached to this notice.
