Figure 6 Notice of Completion

This example shows the Certificate of Occupancy being issued on November 2. Once a Certificate of Occupancy is issued, the Notice of Completion can be filed at any time

Warning: Under the following circumstances, you cannot file a Notice of Completion unless you first file a Notice of Intent to File a Notice of Completion. The Notice of Intent to File a Notice of Completion is required when the project is: 1) privately owned; 2) total construction time exceeds 120 days; 3) total value of construction is greater than $500,000.00; and 4) no payment bond has been obtained by the owner/general contractor.

For instructions on filing a Notice of Intent to File a Notice of Completion, see the SCR Notice of Completion instructions above.

What is the effect of a Notice of Completion?

All Preliminary Notices are due within 10 days after the Notice of Completion, and all liens must be filed within 90 days after the Notice of Completion.
