Notice Of Non-Responsibility

DEFINITION of 'Notice Of Non-Responsibility'

A written notice provided by the owner or agent of a project. The notice of non-responsibility shields the owner from any lien stemming from the failure to order labor or supplies necessary to complete the project. This notice is used by landlords with tenants who do improvements on their property.

BREAKING DOWN 'Notice Of Non-Responsibility'

Most states requires landlords to fill out notices of non-responsibility in order for them to avoid being stuck with construction bills ordered by the tenant. If the tenant vacates or refuses to pay, then the landlords can get stuck with the bill.
