FLORIDA CONSTRUCTION LAW. A construction lien, also known as a contractor's lien or mechanic's lien, is a legal claim against a property. When properties are built or improvements are made, the contractor and subcontractors may have a right to file a lien against the property if they don't receive full payment. The lien must be paid if the property is to be sold and the contractor can ultimately force the sale of the property, even homestead property, if the lien is not paid off within a certain period.
Florida Construction law is complex. Building projects have the potential to be very complicated and frustrating. Oftentimes, there are issues that arise that lead to delays and added costs. And while it can be tempting to take shortcuts or ignore these issues in the interest of meeting deadlines or getting the job done faster, doing so could ultimately cause more problems than it solves.
