Solutions for Florida Liens

Common Questions

What is the Process to File a Lien in Florida for General Contractors?

General Contractors (as well as Subcontractors and Suppliers) have 90 days from the last furnished labor or materials to record a lien in the county in which the property is located. General Contractors hired directly by the owner of the property must also file a Notice of Commencement if the project is over $2,500.

What is the Process to File a Lien in Florida for Subcontractors, Suppliers, and Equipment Lessors?

Subcontractors, Suppliers, Equipment lessors, or anyone not hired directly by the owner must send a Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor. It is important to note that the notice is due by the 40th day from the first furnishing labor or material but that it must be received by no later than the 45th day.

What is the Process to File a Lien in Florida for Laborers?

A laborer is not required to send a Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor. You can “Pass Go” right to filing a lien and have 90 days from the last furnishing of labor or materials to the project.

What is the Deadline for a Subcontractor to Send Notice to Owner/Notice to Contractor?

A subcontractor's Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor is due by the 40th day from the first furnishing labor or material to the job. Because the notice must be received by no later than the 45th day, the best business practice is to send your Notice to Owner from when you sign the contract.

Who Does not Have Florida Lien Rights?

The following people do not have lien rights in Florida: 3rd tier subcontractors, material suppliers to material suppliers, and material suppliers to sub-sub-subcontractors.

Do Liens Expire in Florida?

Yes, liens expire 1 year from the date of the lien with a few exceptions. These exceptions are: A Notice of Contest reduces the time to file a suit from 1 year to 60 days. A 20-day Summons to Show Cause reduces the time to file suit from 1 year to 20 days Upon recording a Notice of Commencement termination, the lien must be filed within 30 days, and a new Notice to Owner must be served.

What is a Notice of Commencement (NOC)?

A Notice of Commencement is essentially a roll call of subcontractors and suppliers (anyone not contracted directly with the owner) that protects the owner of the property. At the beginning of the project, the owner (or more likely, the General Contractor) can file a Notice of Commencement. If the NOC is recorded, every subcontractor or supplier wishing to secure their lien rights must send a Notice to Owner or forfeit their right to lien.

When Does a Notice of Commencement Need to be Filed?

The Notice of Commencement should be filed before or as soon as you start the project, but once it has been filed, you only have 90 days to actually begin work.

How Long Do You Have to File a Construction Lien in Florida?

You have 90 days from the last day you furnished labor or materials to the project. The last day does not include punch list work.

What is a Sworn Statement of Account?

A Sworn Statement of Account helps the General Contractors and owners verify where subcontractors are on the job. The statement also provides information on payments to their material suppliers. If you receive a Request for Sworn Statement of Account and fail to serve a response in 30 days, you will lose your lien rights.
