A Notice of Furnishing provides proof that a subcontractor, supplier or laborer has provided labor or materials toward a construction project in Michigan.
If you are a subcontractor or supplier, provide the notice of furnishing within 20 days of the first delivery of goods or services to the property owner, lessee or designee. If you are a laborer, send your notice of furnishing within 30 days after wages are contractually due (special provisions in the law allow later filings in case a union representative files for unpaid fringe benefits for a group of workers.) A copy of the notice of furnishing should also be provided to the general contractor or builder. The notice of furnishing should be sent by certified mail or hand delivered.
The requirements vary from state to state for the notice of furnishing.
