We are renovating a hotel in Melbourne Florida. We are a subcontractor. We have worked for the general contractor for approximately 20 years, so we are very familiar with them. The owners of the hotel have not paid the general contractor in a timely manner, and therefore we have not been paid. I know the property is for sale, and I don't want to leave us unprotected. I didn't file a notice to commence, or a notice to owner of any kind. We started renovations on March 15th 2018, and continue to work there now. I filed a notice of intent to lien this morning. I wasn't aware that a notice to owner was necessary. Please advise.
