As the general contractor and under contract with the homeowner, do we need to file a Notice to Owner?

FloridaPreliminary NoticeRight to Lien

We are separating from our agreement (both of us have agreed to this as neither is benefiting from this relationship) and I want to have my lien rights protected in case there is an issue of payment.

In Florida, providing a Notice to Owner is only a specific requirement for parties (other than wage laborers) who did not contract directly with the property owner.

Florida has a complex mechanics lien scheme, and provides for many potential notices, some of which must be given pursuant to request, but direct contractors are not required to provide the general preliminary notice to owner in order to retain lien rights.
