Can you put a lien on work that hasn't been done yet?

Florida

We are a contracting company that has performed EMS work on a property and have a signed contract with more work that needs to be performed. There is a lien in question with the entire insurance scope amount and homeowner is questioning because all work hasn't been completed. Please provide insight.

You can only lien for that portion of work which was actually incorporated into the real property. You can not lien for work not yet performed. If you do, you are exposing yourself to a fraudulent lien. I represent multiple remediation companies whom deal with this precise issue. Feel free to contact me directly for a consultation.
