Construction Liens & Defect Litigation

Oftentimes, the filing of lien is necessary for a contractor or subcontractor to protect their right to be compensated for work performed. Contractors need to know that Florida law contains very detailed requirements regarding the recording, perfecting, and foreclosing construction liens. When dealing with construction liens, the timing and content of liens is critical. The precise guidelines are defined by Florida’s “Construction Lien Law;” Fla. Stat. 713.001, et al. Our attorneys have the requisite skill and knowledge to successfully guide their clients through these procedures.

The term “Construction Defect” can cover a broad spectrum of problems ranging from very minor cosmetic issues to major structural/foundation components (i.e. carpentry, masonry, soil condition). The past few years has seen a huge increase in the number of construction defect cases both with residential and commercial properties. There are many factors contributing the rise in construction claims including, undertrained or unlicensed contractors, unskilled laborers, and “rushed” construction jobs that were erected during the recent housing boom.

No matter the cause, our attorneys have the ability to represent clients in dispute resolution and litigation involving every possible type of construction defect.
