New notice required under Mechanics Lien Act.

The Mechanics Lien Act was amended to require a new notice to homeowners in owner-occupied single-family residences. Contractors now must send homeowners written notice within 10 days after recording a lien against their property.

The amendment does not apply to subcontractors. The amendment is effective for contracts entered into after January 1, 2010.

Complete text of the amended section (770 ILCS 60/7).
