A statutory Notice of Contest of Claim against a Payment Bond, as set forth by 713.23(1)(e) Fla. Stat. (2016), is used by a contractor or her attorney to dispute a demand for payment for labor, services, or materials. A contractor or the contractor's attorney may also use this form to shorten the time allotted to commence a claim against a payment bond provided under this section or 713.245.

Before filing this notice, the lienor must have recorded both a Notice to Contractor and a Notice of Nonpayment. As specified in 713.23, an "action for the labor or materials or supplies may not be instituted or prosecuted against the contractor or surety unless both notices have been given, if required by this section."

Further, the law limits the window to initiate an action against the contractor or against the surety on the bond to one year from the performance of the labor or completion of delivery of the materials and supplies. The countdown starts on the last day of furnishing labor, services, or materials by the lienor, and exceeding the time limit will likely invalidate the lienor's claim.

This document includes the name and address of the lienor, the dates on which the notice of nonpayment was drafted and served, and the date on which the notice is signed. The contractor or his attorney must sign the form in front of a notary before delivery to the lienor.

After being served with the notice, the lienor must respond with a suit to enforce his or her claim against the payment bond within 60 days or his claim will be extinguished automatically.

Each case is unique, so contact an attorney with questions about using a statutory Notice of Contest of Claim or other issues related to Florida's Construction Lien Law.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

The form was easy enough to purchase but I ended up not needing it. No fault of Deeds.com, but it was of no value to me.

On multiple tries, I could not get validation mail through my Yahoo email address. I tried Gmail, worked the first time. The rest of the process was super easy and fast.

These forms made it so easy to update the property deed and the instructions and sample filled out form were most helpful. You might want to add some brief information on when or why to use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity notary form. In my case the notary was required to use it but also filled in the brief notarize section on the Affidavit as well. She said the one on the Affidavit had some value because it showed she had witnessed the my signature. But this was only after I suggested both be filled in as she initially thought to just strike through it and just use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity form.

I wish every state offered such an easy and economical download of these forms. You were reasonable in price, I received one of every form you offered along with instructions, and it made my day so easy. Why pay a lawyer a fortune for these simple (almost) everyday forms when you can do it all for less than $20. Thank you for being reasonable, well organized, and available for common use! Cherif T.

This was easy to use and only contained one glaring error-where to send the completed form to finish the process. I’ve completed the form, does this mean I get the amended deed sent to me? I think not.

Thanks for advertising the forms and sharing to the public for easy access. I have been looking for a lawyer to process the papers but did not realize that I can do it myself until I googled the information. I found your website. Thanks again
