    I place / put Mr X on notice of responsibility for the building damage

    Hello everybody!

    I place / put Mr X on notice of responsibility for the building damage.

    Does the above sentence mean that "Mr X is warned that he might be held responsible for the building damage"?

    Thank you.

    I thought it indicated some extent of probability.

    I agree. To be put on notice of responsibility likely suggests that a lawsuit will be filed. The result of that lawsuit has not yet been determined.
