Helping Construction Businesses/Contractor With Lien Matters:

Liens are one of the most effective legal mechanisms for addressing nonpayment in construction projects. When a construction contractor properly establishes a lien right on a property, one enforcement action it can take in response to nonpayment is foreclosing on the property.

Florida Statutes Chapter 713 is the state’s lien law. This statute contains rules on a wide range of construction lien issues, including when a contractor has lien rights, how lien rights are perfected, notice to owners, lien recording and lien enforcement. This law also sets a variety of deadlines and time limits regarding liens.

Our firm is very knowledgeable of the rules, deadlines and processes of in Florida’s lien law. We understand the various types of lien issues that can arise in construction projects. When you are facing a construction lien issue, we can explain how the law applies to your situation and what options are available to you. We can also advise you on the option which will suit your needs best.

While we help construction contractors who are seeking to establish, protect or enforce construction lien rights, we also help contractors that have lost out on lien rights understand what alternatives are available for addressing nonpayment.

Additionally, our lawyers provides legal defense services to contractors and owners who are facing construction lien foreclosure actions.
