A pre-lien notice is only required on smaller residential projects. It is not required on construction of 5000 square feet or more. Design professionals must file a lien within 120 days of last furnishing services and only if there has been some “actual physical improvement”. An enforcement suit must be filed within one year of the last date services were performed. Liens apply only to private projects not public. M.S.A. §514.01
