Construction Liens

When a property owner fails to pay a contractor, or a contractor fails to pay a subcontractor for work performed, Florida's construction lien law gives the contractor or subcontractor the power to place a lien on the property.

Decades Of Experience In Construction Lien Law

Florida's construction lien law, or Chapter 713, is a winding maze of statutory notice and recording requirements that only an attorney with extensive experience can maneuver. If contractors do not follow the process precisely, they may encounter delays, lose their opportunity to enforce the lien or be liable for filing a fraudulent lien. At Dana J. Watts, Attorney at Law, we help contractors navigate this maze so that they can secure the payment they are entitled to receive.

If you are a property owner embroiled in a construction defect dispute or breach of construction contract dispute, you may have rightfully withheld payment from a contractor or developer, only to receive a lien on your property. Perhaps you paid your contractor, only to find out that he or she did not pay the subcontractor, who placed a lien against your property. Dana Watts understands this complex area of the law inside and out and will develop a strong case in your defense.
