Who can file a mechanic's lien in Florida?
Prime contractors, subtrades, sub-subs, laborers and material suppliers all have lien rights, as do architects, engineers and other professionals involved in the project. You must be licensed in order to have lien rights.
I'm a subcontractor. What if the prime contractor who hired me doesn't have a license?
That won't affect your lien rights. Your rights are protected regardless of whether or not the prime is licensed.
How long do I have to file my lien?
Mechanic's liens must be filed within 90 days of the last day on which you supplied labor or materials to the job.
Before you can receive that final payment on a construction project, Florida law requires you to provide the property owner with this Contractor's Final Payment Affidavit. The Affidavit is a sworn statement that attests:
The contractor was contracted by the owner to furnish labor, services or materials for construction on the property.
All of the work has been completed.
All lienholders have been paid except for the ones disclosed in the Affidavit.
