Florida Lien Law Issues?
Florida has recognized that, at the onset of any project, the construction industry requires a substantial initial investment by the contractor and trades that can include material acquisition, mobilization, planning, permitting, and insurance costs.
We represent general contractors, tradespeople, construction managers, design professionals, material suppliers, and project owners in disputes relative to the preparation, recording, and enforcement of mechanic’s liens as well as other matters relative to collection, foreclosure, and nonpayment or overpayment.
Attorney Fees Available for Lien Claims
Moreover, assets are laid out over the course of the project, to be reimbursed in stages under a draw schedule. That is why it is one of the few areas of law that has a built-in attorney fee provision.
Under the Florida Construction Lien Law, contractors, tradesmen, design professionals, and other industry groups can protect their respective rights to receive payment for the work they have completed and, in most cases, also recover their fees and costs in collecting these funds.
We Can Help at Every Step
However, the rules and procedures are very strict and unforgiving, which is why we are here to help.
