Notice to Owner FAQ
What is a notice to owner?
A notice to owner is designed to announce who is working on a construction project. Owners or developers often are not aware of who is supplying materials or labor to the site, and these subcontractors and suppliers must notify the owner that they are on the construction job in order to have construction lien rights.
When is a notice to owner required?
A Florida Notice to Owner is required for subcontractors or suppliers: anyone who does not have a direct contract with the owner. In Florida, a notice to owner is required to be sent at the beginning of the project, when the labor and materials are first provided to the jobsite. A Florida NTO is required in order for Florida construction lien claims to be enforceable.
What is the purpose of a notice to owner?
The purpose of the notice to owner is to provide the owner or developer with the subcontractors and suppliers' contact information, as well as information on what materials or services are being provided to the construction project. The NTO allows the owner to keep track of who is on the jobsite, and potentially understand who is not being paid for the work performed.
