In Florida, contractors, subcontractors, laborers, materialmen and professional lienors have the remedy of placing construction liens on a property if payment has not been remitted for the services which have been provided. Florida law proscribes very strict requirements when it comes to the placement and enforcement of construction liens and mechanic’s liens on Florida property.
There are various deadlines, notice requirements and procedures that must be followed in order to have a properly executed and enforceable construction lien in Florida. Having worked side by side with Florida contractors and materialmen over the years, we are aware of the money, effort and time that go into every construction project.
