NATIONAL LIEN SERVICES, LLC, an Arizona Corporation (hereinafter referred to as “NLS”), provides research, clerical, and related legal document drafting services for the preparation and purpose of creating and serving lien related documents in accordance with the following terms and conditions:

TLDR; (Too Long, Didn’t Read)

We are not attorneys. Period. Although we create legal documents for related to your company’s lien or bond claim rights, we are not attorneys, nor do we represent ourselves to be legal professionals. We do not offer legal advice, services, or direction regardless of question or scenario as the Company is not sanctioned to practice law in any way.

We aren’t mind readers. Period. Although we work diligently to warrant our work, we are wholly dependent on You to provide accurate project locations, scope of work, project type, dollar amounts, and dates when requesting your documents. Any inaccuracies, untruths, deception, exclusion of accurate facts, or misleading information provided BY you via the Site, electronic mail, phone, text, or any other communication renders National Lien Services, LLC, agents, affiliates, and partners harmless for any potential litigation caused by said inaccuracies or untruths.

Basically, we trust you. If you tell us you began or completed a job on a certain date and/or the dollar amount your owed is free of unauthorized change orders, breach of contract with your client, or fall outside the permissible avenues for collection, then we will believe you. If you have any questions on the validity of filing deadlines or timeframes, lien amounts owed, or claimed, we direct you to your construction attorney for advice.

We aren’t skip tracers. Period. If you have an open invoice with us, please be mindful to pay that invoice within the terms of your agreement with us – don’t make us hunt you down. We protect YOUR money, please be sure to help us protect ours and pay your invoices in a timely manner. Accounts that become past due at 45 days, late fees will be incurred at $75 for every month the invoice is open. Please don’t make us go to small claims court… it’s just a huge time drain for all of us. If you’re challenging a charge or have questions on an invoice you have received, you may always email our billing team at billing at We are ALWAYS available to answer questions or help.
