A complaint regarding a latent act or omission about structural defects must be filed within ten years of the date of the alleged infringement.

Contract Agreement Notice to Owner
Under the CA Mechanics’ Lien Law, any contractor, subcontractor, laborer, supplier, or other person or entity who helps to improve your property, but is not paid for their work supplies, has a right to place a lien on your home, land, or property where the work was performed and to sue you in court to obtain payment.
This means that a court officer could sell your home, land, and property after a court hearing, and the sale proceeds are used to satisfy what you owe. This can happen even if you have paid your contractor in full if the contractor, subcontractors, laborers, or suppliers remain unpaid.
To preserve their rights to file a claim or lien against your property, certain claimants such as subcontractors or material suppliers are each required to provide you with a document called a “Preliminary Notice.” Contractors and laborers who contract with owners directly do not have to provide such notice since you know their existence as an owner. A preliminary notice is not lean against your property. Its purpose is to notify you of persons or entities that may have a right to file a lien against your property if they are not paid. To perfect their lean rights, a contractor, subcontractor, supplier, or laborer must file a mechanics lien with the county recorder, which then becomes a recorded lien against your property. Generally, the maximum time allowed for filing a mechanics’ lien against your property is 90 days after substantially completing your project.
