What is the Florida Notice of Commencement?

Why use a Notice of Commencement in Florida?

As an owner of real estate, you must record a Notice of Commencement when a contractor, subcontractor, material provider or laborer starts a work or improvement on your property.

The Notice of Commencement is set forth under the Florida mechanic's lien law. The lien statute aims to provide notices to contractors, owners, subcontractors, material men and laborers so each has everybody else's notice that they're working on the job and therefore may have potential mechanic's lien claims. By recording the Notice of Commencement, such notice is made available to all interested parties. Therefore building permits will usually not be issued to contractors unless the notice of commencement was properly recorded.

The Notice of Commencement must contain a description sufficient for identification of the real property, a description of the improvement, name and address of the owner, and information to identify the lender and surety, if any. This allows potential lien claimants to identify the owner and everyone else with a potential interest in the real estate. Property owners are required to file the notice before the work or improvement begins, although if the work does not commence within 30 days of recording the notice, it is considered void. The filing date is important, because any future liens relate back to this date.

Except for improvements for which the direct contract price is $2,500 or less, a property owner or the owner's authorized agent must record a notice of commencement in the clerk's office and post either a certified copy thereof or a notarized statement that the notice of commencement has been filed for recording along with a copy.

An owner may terminate the effective period of a Notice of Commencement when the construction is complete, or after construction ceases before completion and all contractors and sub-contractor's (lienors) have been paid, by filing a Notice of Termination of Notice of Commencement.

Each case is unique, so contact a Florida-licensed attorney familiar with the lien law with specific questions or for complex situations.

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.

Name: Roger M.

Review: A better or more simplified explanation of what some of the more common titles would be used for would help. You list 6-8 types of Trusts alone. An example of doing a Grant Deed to move a property into, out of, or from a Trust to a Trust would have been helpful.

Review: I am a civil engineer, not an attorney. I deal with easements on a regular basis but not so much on the "recording" side of things. I normally prepare the graphic exhibits that accompany the dedication language but I am not the one who provides that language. Your forms solved that issue for me. Thanks.

Name: Sharon G.

Review: I could not be happier with the service afforded by Deeds.com. After having been directed to two other organizations who purportedly performed this service and being told they could not accommodate me, I found Deeds.com. The website is extremely easy to use, the directions are clear and concise. The site updated me regularly as the documents were progressing through the process, and the detailing of costs was great. The turn-around -- which isn't completely in the hands of the site -- was incredibly quick. I'd use this group again without reservation. As a person who'd have to otherwise travel almost five hours to record, this has been heaven-sent!
