Mid State Notifier Inc. is a professional Florida Notice to Owner Company servicing all parties involved in construction projects throughout the State of Florida. We believe in making the Notice to Owner process easy on our clients and we want to exceed your expectations with every Notice to Owner we complete.
A Notice to Owner is a prerequisite for recording a lien. Pertaining to the construction industry, any company or individual working for someone other than the owner must field a Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor to ensure property lien rights. Certified copies must be sent to the owner, general contractor, bonding company and lending institution, depending on the individual situation. The aforementioned parties must receive the Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor within
45 days of your job start date.
CONSTRUCTION LIEN LAW
After a Notice to Owner or Notice to Contractor has been served you have 90 days after last furnishing materials or service to file a Notice of Nonpayment or Claim of Lien
TO OWNER & CLAIM OF
Florida’s Construction Lien Law Chapter 713 is one of the strongest in the country. Properly used, it can save you untold thousands of dollars and also speed the turnover of your accounts receivables.
Notice To Owner
Subcontractors and material suppliers must serve a “Notice to Owner” before or within 45 days of first furnishing materials or service. If you fail to properly notify the owner of your presence on the property, you may forfeit your right to lien the property.
Notice to Contractor
“Notice to Owner/Notice to Contractor” must be served by certified mail to the owner and anyone else designated by the “Notice of Commencement or Bond”.
LIEN LAW COMPLIANCE
PRELIMINARY NOTICES, MECHANICS LIENS & BOND CLAIMS
In order for a project to be lienable, you must be a contractor, subcontractor, distributor or material supplier who improved the real property value to a specific location. Due to the time sensitive nature of the mechanics lien, it is important that we receive your information as early as possible to ensure optimal protection of your receivables.
The contractor shall execute the affidavit and deliver it to the owner at least 5 days before instituting an action. The “Claim of Lien” is recorded with the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the county in which the property is located. Read the entire Chapter 713 Florida Statutes click here…
