Florida Notice to Contractor

Under Florida law, a statutory Notice to Contractor form is used to inform its recipient that the claimant intends to rely upon the contractor's surety bond to secure payment for the furnishing of materials or services for the improvement of the real property. See FLA. STAT. 713.23(c).

This form identifies the relevant parties, including the owner, who ordered the work, the general contractor, who coordinates the project, and the lienor, or subcontractor, who is completing the assigned tasks, and who holds a claim (lien) against the contractor's bond to ensure payment. It also provides information about the property's location and specifies the type of improvement and associated materials.

Before beginning or within 45 days after beginning to furnish labor, materials, or supplies, a lienor who is not contractually connected with the contractor, except a laborer, shall serve the contractor with notice in writing that the lienor will look to the contractor's bond for protection on the work. FLA. STAT. 713.23(c) If a notice of commencement with the attached bond is not recorded before construction begins, the lienor not under contract with the contractor may, in the alternative, elect to serve the notice to the contractor up to 45 days after the date the lienor is served with a copy of the bond.

Alexis B. said: Highly Pleased- Strongly Recommend Deeds.com Long review... sorry:-) Originally I was very skeptical due to the enormous amount of the scams going on now days and the number of online sources that "claim" to provide you with deed forms for free or for a few. Nothing that you need and want done is free. There is always a cost. So luckily I came across deeds.com. This was the only site that appeared to be simple, to the point, and made no crazy promises. So before selecting this site, I did a little more checking around/price checking to ensure I am getting the best price for the product I needed. I even checked Staples and Amazon to find that they do indeed sell these forms but I do not think the products they provide are specific for my state and county. They claim their forms provided are for all states but my state is specific and I prefer to have forms provided by Deeds.com that is based on Indiana statute that Deed.com clearly identifies on each form. Deeds.com price of $20 seemed a little high at first but when I saw the products provided, the $20 cost is more than reasonable and fair. You not only get the deed form specific for my state and my specific "county" but also the other various/supplemental forms that may be required. Being familiar with my state and knowing how tedious and anal my state is on everything, I was pleasantly please to see the info and extra supplemental forms provided. For example, a person new to the State who recently had property deeded to them, would not necessarily know about the Homestead tax exemption provided if property is your primary residents, over 65 exemption etc. I would highly recommend this site for anyone needing these documents because Deeds.com has you covered on any and all forms/info you could ever need! A bonus is that there is one flat fee and not monthly cost that you have to worry about canceling later unless you superficially select a monthly package. I love the fact that Deeds.com is nothing fancy. There is not a bunch of elaborate graphics etc. They only provide what you need and what they provide is very accurate. Deeds.com has a customer for life.
