Liens and Bonds

Florida’s construction lien law applies to the residential homeowner undertaking a $5,000 kitchen renovation just as much as it does to the sophisticated developer building a hotel.  Failure to comply with the often stringent requirements of the lien law can result in harsh consequences.  Owners may be forced to pay twice due to a failure to obtain lien releases in exchange for payment.  Contractors may lose lien rights by failing to timely give a contractor’s final payment affidavit, and subcontractors and suppliers may lose lien rights because a notice was not timely or properly served.  The lien law presents a host of challenges for all involved. Payment bonds present similar issues.

Make sure you are not exposed to paying double or losing the security and leverage of a lien or bond claim.  The Law Office of Robert S. Tanner will provide you with outstanding representation and help you protect your bottom line. 


Making sure that all aspects of your contractual agreements are in accordance with your best interests can be critical.  Insurance provisions, pay-if-paid conditions precedent, and indemnity clauses can have devastating consequences.  A well-qualified, board certified construction lawyer can identify the risks so you can make an informed decision.  We also draft and deliver contracts customized to suit our clients’ specific circumstances.
