Can a home inspector file a lien?

FloridaMechanics Lien

I own a water restoration company and a home inspection company. For my home inspection company, would I be able to file a lien? Situation: Buyer goes under contract to purchase a home from a Seller. Said contract allows a home inspection. Buyer contracts with home inspector for services. Services are conducted but Buyer dodges payment to inspector.

A construction lien may be filed only for labor, services and materials to improve the property. The service you provided does not meet this test. Suggestion: Identify the closing agent (the realtor knows) and give you bill to them to be paid at closing.

In Florida, unless there is a written contract that provides otherwise, only persons who prepare improvements to real property or material suppliers may file liens under the Construction Lien Law (Part I of Ch. 713, Florida Statutes).


I did not see any provision for liens in the Home Inspection Law, Part XV of Ch. 468, Florida Statutes.

In this case the buyer is responsible for paying for the service, this is natural.
