Construction is one of the largest industries in the state of Florida. Whether you are a property owner, contractor, subcontractor, laborer or material supplier, there is always a risk when taking on a new project. You need to know your rights and you need competent counsel early on in the process.
An important and complex area of construction, Florida's Construction Lien Law, Fla. Stat. Chapter 713, and related bond statutes shape the direction of almost every project. In Florida, a person or company that performs work or provides materials or supplies to a property may have the right to a lien on that property. In fact, this is such an important part of the construction process, that a construction lien is one of only three exceptions to Florida's Constitutional homestead protection. Whether you are a developer, contractor material supplier, or simply a homeowner remodeling your home, it is imperative to know your rights and duties under Florida's Construction Lien Law.
