Florida County Recorders

If unpaid on a Florida construction job, you need to file a Florida mechanics lien with the specific Florida county recorder office where the work on the project was performed.

Every county has different and very specific rules for how mechanics lien and other construction payment documents should be filed. These requirements are strict and include the number of inches your document margins need to be, the size of the paper you need to use, the font (and color), cover pages, etc. Not meeting these requirements could invalidate your document, potentially leading to a missed lien deadline. Therefore, making sure you meet each county's specific document requirements, deadlines, and filing fees are extremely important to filing your lien. Lots of requirements are hard to find on county recorder websites or are just not listed and require contacting the county office for the information.

This page serves as a directory of all Florida county recorder offices and specifically, the offices where it is appropriate to file a Florida Mechanic's lien. There are many different county offices for a variety of documents you can file so it's important you visit, use, and deliver the correct office for your lien filing, or your document will be returned (or even left on a pile untouched while you think the office is recording your document).
