NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNERS - F.S. 713
YOUR FAILURE TO RECORD A NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT MAY RESULT IN YOUR PAYING TWICE
FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO YOUR PROPERTY. A NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT MUST BE RECORDED
AND POSTED ON THE JOB SITE BEFORE THE FIRST INSPECTION.
IF YOU INTEND TO OBTAIN FINANCING, CONSULT WITH YOUR LENDER OR AN ATTORNEY BEFORE
COMMENCING WORK OR RECORDING YOUR NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT.
If you have hired a contractor to do the work, make sure that the contractor obtains the permit. The contractor's signature
indicates he or she is responsible for the work, and if the work if not performed according to code, the City can require
corrective action by the party who obtained the permit. Furthermore, if the contractor is not licensed, you can be in violation
of state law by allowing an unlicensed person to do the work.
Since you or your contractor have applied for a building permit for work to be done on property you own, you should be
aware that:
Any person who furnishes labor (a contractor, subcontractor or laborer) or supplies materials for your home repair,
improvement or new construction may be able to file a claim (called a lien) against you if he has not been paid by your
contractor or you. You are liable to subcontractors or suppliers if they are not paid by your contractor or yourself.
In order to protect yourself from paying twice, you must take the following steps:
Before any work is done by you or your contractor, immediately file or record a notice of commencement with the office of the
Clerk of the Circuit Court. This step is required by the Florida Construction Lien Law, for all work greater than $2500.00.
At the completion of work, require the contractor to give you a sworn notarized statement indicating all bills for labor and
materials have been paid or a list naming those supplying labor and materials that have not been paid. Ask for the affidavit
before making the last payment.
For further information on the Florida Construction Lien Law, you should read Chapter 713 of the Florida Statutes. This
information is provided as required by law. Your local building permit office assumes no responsibility in this regard, and
furnishing of this information does not imply that your contractor is unreliable.
Unlicensed Contractors: No person shall engage in the business or act in the capacity of a contractor without being duly
registered or certified. Any person who violates this provision is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, and may be
punished by a prison term not exceeding one (1) year and/ or a fine not to exceed $1,000. (Section 489.127.Florida Statutes).
ADVISORY
Please check the Plat, Survey, Title Policy and all other documentation relating to your property prior to design
and construction. The City of Tampa and its staff DO NOT review for compliance with individual private deed
restrictions and covenants during permit review. The issuance of a building permit by the City of Tampa
signifies that the project is in compliance with the zoning codes of the City of Tampa and City of Tampa and
Florida building code. The issuance of a building permit DOES NOT insure compliance with private deed
restrictions or covenants.
APPLICANT ATTESTATION
Application is hereby made to obtain a building permit to do the work and installations as indicated. I certify
that no work or installation has commenced prior to the issuance of a permit and that all work will be performed
to comply with all applicable federal, state and local codes and laws regulating construction in the City of
Tampa. Under penalty of perjury, I declare that all the information included in this building permit application
along with the attached construction plans and specs is true, accurate and complete. I understand that the
inclusion of
any false or misleading information will render this permit application null and void. I further attest
that the Florida Construction Lien Law (F.S.713) summary statement, as published by the Florida Department of
Business and Professional Regulation, will be made available to the property owner. See www.tampagov.net/
permits.
