Important Notice to Owner/Contractor, Lien, and Bond Deadlines

Florida’s construction lien and bond law is complex and ever changing. Below are some of the general timelines which must be followed to preserve lien and/or bond rights. These timelines can be altered and shortened, and lien and bond rights can be affected by other issues, so you are encouraged to consult with an attorney if you have any questions. The below timelines are provided for general informational purposes only.

Non-Bonded Job

  • No later than 45 Days from the date you or your company commences to furnish labor, services, or materials to a job site to send a notice to owner
  • No later than 90 Days from the date of final furnishing of labor, services, or materials to record a lien
  • 15 Days from the date the lien is recorded to mail a copy of the lien to the affected parties
  • 1 year from the date the lien is recorded to file suit on your lien

Bonded Job

  • 45 Days from the date you or your company commences to furnish labor, services, or materials to a job site to send a notice to contractor
  • 90 Days from the date of final furnishing of labor, services, or materials to serve a notice of non-payment
  • 1 year from the date of final furnishing of labor, services, or materials to file suit on your bond claim

Don’t hesitate to exercise your Notice to Owner, Lien, and/or Bond Rights. Missing a deadline can severely hinder your ability to secure payment and can take away one of the most cost effective options available. A great strategy is to Notice every job within 2 weeks of starting. It’s not rude, it’s protecting your business, your employees, and your rights.
