Property owners in Florida are provided several options under the law to expedite or clear liens against their property’s title.

They can record a notice of contest, which then gives the lienors 60 days to institute foreclosure proceedings, or they can file a 20-day summons for rule to show cause, which shortens the time in which lienors can foreclose to 20 days. Alternatively, a bond can be secured, which transfers the lien from the property to security, normally a cash or surety bond, removing the cloud of the lien from the property’s title.
