FLORIDA'S CONSTRUCTION LIEN LAW
According to Florida Statute 713, Part 1, as it pertains to home construction and remodeling, those who work on your property or provide materials and are not paid-in-full have a right to enforce their claim for payment against your property. This claim is known as a construction lien.
If your contractor fails to pay subcontractors or material suppliers, the people who are owed money may look to your property for payment, even if you have paid your contractor in full. This means that if a lien is filed against your property, your property could be sold against your will to pay for labor, materials, or other services which your contractor may have failed to pay.
As a convenience to customers, the City of Fort Lauderdale is has compiled a list of area contractors. Please note that this list does not serve as an endorsement or referral of any kind. Selecting a contractor is solely the decision and responsibility of the property owner.
