- the legal description or tax parcel number, and street address of the construction site;
- the property owner’s name, address, and telephone number;
- the prime contractor’s business name, address, phone number, Washington state contractor’s registration number; and
- either (a) the name, address, and phone number of the lender administering the construction financing, if any, or (b) the name and address of the firm that issued a payment bond, if any.
