Should You File A Lien?
This is a common question and the answer is no, not without consulting a construction or real property lawyer. While the lien form appears simple, liens are actually complex issues with long-range ramifications. Mechanics’ liens are complex, technical and require strict compliance. Florida has specific statutes regarding:
- When and how a lien is to be filed or recorded
- The type of information that must be provided before filing one
- Which notices must be given and to whom
- Protections afforded
A consultation with a construction attorney before filing or responding to any lien is in your best interest and time is of the essence.
Understanding Your Contracts
To best protect your business, you should never sign anything that you do not fully understand. An attorney can ensure that the wording and terms fit your goals.
The same is true for your “template-style” contracts. You may be using contracts that are actually not in your best interest or not fully suited to your specific purposes. An experienced construction or contract attorney can ensure that your contracts serve and protect your business and interests. Many times this simple “contract review” step can save you from costly litigation.
