What is the Florida Final Payment Affidavit?

Why do I need a contractor's final payment affidavit?

Florida law requires that the contractor's final payment affidavit be presented to the owner when it's time to make the final payment on the project. The affidavit is only required by contractors, so subcontractors and materialmen need not provide any individual documents. The affidavit sets forth the amount of final payment due and affirms that all lienors have been paid in full (except for those specifically listed in the document as remaining unpaid). The affidavit is used in order to prevent the owner from having to pay twice.

If you fail to serve the owner with the final payment affidavit, you forfeit any lien right or right of action against the owner for labor, services, or materials furnished under the direct contract. Note that erroneously including or omitting any information in the affidavit, even if the owner accepts it, does not defeat an otherwise valid lien. Regardless, accuracy matters because the statement is given under oath, and an incorrect affidavit may be used in court to discredit the contractor's claims.

The contractor must execute the affidavit and deliver it to the owner at least 5 days before instituting an action to enforce his or her lien even if the final payment is not due or because the contract is terminated for a reason other than completion. This is required regardless of whether the contractor has any lienors working under him or her.

Filing the affidavit is a necessary precondition in order to eventually secure a mechanics lien on the owner's property to encourage payment. As such, take care when completing the affidavit to ensure everything is accurate when the owner receives it. The owner has the right to rely on the contractor's affidavit in making the final payment for all lienors listed within it.

Each case is unique, so contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex situations.

Review: Holy cow. I was told by several people that getting a deed recorded would take 7-10 days. So I thought I'd give deeds.com a try with their e-filing service. I created my account and submitted my deed around 4:00 p.m. and it was recorded before I woke up the next morning. Awesome service! Totally worth the $19 service fee.

Review: Your website advertising was somewhat deceptive regarding doing a quitclaim on a name change. "If you are transferring the property to yourself under your new name, all you have to do is update the deed from your former name to your current one." This made this sound easy. But when I downloaded the material for my state, expecting to find an example, there was no example of how to do a name change quitclaim deed! I therefore had to figure this out myself. You might have provided a warning about certain uses that were not covered in the material so that people know ahead of time that the use they needed to know about wasn't covered in the material.

Name: Rose H.

Review: I am so glad I found this resource! As the Executor of a family members estate I wanted to save money by bypassing a lawyer as it seemed pretty straight forward to tranfer a Life Estate to the remainderman. (I had original deeds). But talking with 3 different states and 4 different counties - none of which seemed to need the same documents, I was almost ready to dump this in a lawyer's lap. This resource makes it simple!

Name: Kendrick S.

Review: Really solid system for determining what may prevent your documents from being accepted. I love the comments section allowing for fluid communication. I only wish there were automated emails for all those communications and once documents were accepted, but I did receive a couple personally-generated emails regarding the progress instructing me to check the site.
