notice of commencement -- a document used in some states and recorded after a construction loan mortgage has been recorded. All mechanics' liens relate back to the date the notice of commencement was recorded, thus enabling the construction mortgage to remain a first lien, not subordinated to any labor or supplier claim for nonpayment of bills.
