I can find notice of commencement for private companies such as Hillsborough County Associates, but I find none for Hillsborough County Public Schools. There is a GC (Manhattan Construction) but they have no NOCs for the schools; however, the project has begun. Is NOC just for private jobs?...Read More
I signed an NOC with a CGC on 5/19/20. The CGC was extremely behind in their timeframe to complete the project and kept dragging their feet. In addition, they performed work outside the scope of their license (electrical and plumbing). Due to their prolonged delay, I took it upon myself to hire other contractors to complete work that did not need permits and filed complaints against their license. After the CGC did deliberate damage to my property, the CGC"Cancelled" the building permit, then changed it to "Expired", without completing the final inspection to close out the building permit. The CGC was paid in advance for work they did not complete and for materials (quartz countertops and SS appliances), I also paid other contractors for this work the CGC did not perform. So they were overpaid. I am now trying to refinance my house and the CGC will not release the NOC as they claim I owe them money, which is laughable. I need help with preparation and recording the termination to remove the cloud from my title so I can complete my refinance by APRIL 30, 2021!!!...Read More
We has sent out a notice on commencement for a customer and it has yet to be signed and filed with the city. Are we able to start this job without it being filed and signed with the city? Would we need to Revise this in any way?...Read More
I am a prime contractor finishing up a job and the owner does not want to pay. The notice of commencement on the job is expired, but would I still have lien rights if I furnished materials within 90 days?...Read More
I am an owner and by law it appears that I need to file a Notice of Commencement before I start construction of a house on a lot that I own. Due to recent hurricane damages, it is hard to find contractors in the area to do a job. Many of them state that they "currently do not have any resources to take on new jobs". If I go with the standard 1 year expiration, there is a high risk that due to the contractor shortage I may not be able to have the house built before the NofC expires, and I would have to go through the hassle of applying for extension....Read More
Our company (contracting, not ownership) has been requested by an AHJ to hand in a certified NOC. The copy of the NOC we presented is notarized and recorded in the County. How do we get a certified copy, given that we are not the issuers of the document?...Read More
There was a new roof put on my mothers house, however, she has passed and is unable to sign the notice of commencement. Am I able to sign it as her heir while we are waiting for her estate to be closed out since the property hasn't been transferred yet?...Read More
we have a contractor who will be doing a project for us turnkey. This hiring their own subcontactors including paying their own subcontractors.
The contractor will not be the qualifier. He is asking for us to add his name to the NOC in order to receive Notice to Owners and know who they must get a release of lien from - Would their name be added to section 7 or 8 of the Florida NOC form?
I was never issued a NTO from the GC roofer but was notified of a lien 4 months after the job started. I contested the lien and never received any response from the roofer in the 60 days period and still have not. All inspections on my new construction was done through a Private provider hired by my GC. This has been a 18 months process due all other liens and my builder not willing to care of his obligation. We have paid over $30,000 of other valid liens and other cost trying to get this construction finished on our own but under the builder permit. We are finally at the end stage and all inspections have pass including the roof but now was told by the PP and builder that we could not apply for the CO without a roofer attach to the permit and sign off on by the roofer which we can't get. The city of Cape Coral advised without this they never will be able to issue us a CO. This is on top of all the aggravations we went through the last 18 months from the lender not asking for liens waivers, been notified by us that the subs were not getting , finally stopping the draws , also agreeing for us to keep the construction going but not releasing the funds causing us law suit and costly attorney fees and penalty to the liens holders and also charging us more interest and extension penalties. Also we had to convince the city to ask the builders to ask for revisions to the original plans since the builder didn't follow them and the PP never inspected according to them either. Anyway just wondering how we can keep the roofer from holding up our CO....Read More
