About Broward County Florida Notice of Commencement Form

Florida’s Notice of Commencement rules requires that the property owner have this notice form recorded and filed before the start of any Florida construction project that is greater than $2,500 in value. To file this document for a project located in Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Hollywood, or any other city in Broward County, Florida, you’ll need the Broward County Notice of Commencement Form.

Filing this document protects the property owner against the risk of paying for construction work twice, although the owner must follow other procedures as well to fully avail themselves of this protection.  If the construction project has a loan on it — the construction lender must file this document, and the property owner is relieved of this duty.

For all projects in Broward County, Florida, the notice of commencement must be recorded with Broward County Records, Taxes and Treasury Division, or in the office of the clerk where the real property is located.  The Broward County Notice of Commencement Form is made available to you for free here at Levelset.
