About Florida Notice to Owner Form

This Florida Notice to Owner (NTO) form is a letter that the state of Florida requires certain contractors and suppliers to send in order to protect their mechanics lien rights for construction or renovation work. Notice to owner is Florida’s version of a preliminary notice and also goes by the names NTO, notice to owner and Contractor, and pre-lien notice.

If you are a sub contractor or supplier this notice must be sent to the prime contractor, and property owner with 45 days of providing labor or materials to a project. If you are the prime or direct contractor you have 10 days to send this notice and must send a list of all subs and suppliers as well. This notice identifies the sending party as a contractor or supplier on a construction project, so that the property owner is aware of who is providing work.
