What, if any, is the meaning of the term "on notice" when communicated via a letter from someone's lawyer ? Specifically regarding the recipient's liabilities ?

It means you're aware of whatever they've put in the letter.  An example would be if you've been parking infront of their drive and they write to tell you not to do that because it is preventing them from running their business and that they lose x pounds every time you block their car in, then you're on notice about the effect of what you're doing.   

It could act to prevent you from claiming that a loss they've suffered wasn't foreseeable.  What's the context?
