The lien claimant’s last invoice was dated October 24, 2000, and there was no evidence of work done after that date. The plaintiff’s claim of lien, filed on February 23, 2001, was clearly out of time. Despite this, the lien on its face alleged that the debt came due and owing on January 12, 2001, which gave the misleading impression that the lien had been filed in time.
