A notice of claim is a simple instrument. In a condemnation by a local government, only a notice of appearance demanding additional compensation is required. The State form tends to be slightly more complex. However, its function is simply to put the State on notice that the property owner intends to seek additional compensation. See EDPL §503(B) and §504.

However, claims for fixtures must be specific — detailing the actual fixtures for which damages are claimed. See EDPL §503(C).
