What is it a Notice to Owner?
A Notice to Owner, also known as a NTO in the state of Florida, is a notice that secures your right to lien a property. If you are a subcontractor or a supplier and do not have a direct contract with the owner of the property you must send a Notice to Owner to the General Contractor in order to secure your right to lien a property. Subcontractors and suppliers have 45 days from the first day of furnishing materials and/or labor to a property to send a Notice to Owner.
Who needs to send Notices to Owner?
Any subcontractor or supplier that does not have a direct contract with the owner of the property must send a Notice to Owner in order to secure their lien rights. A Notice to Owner is sent if you are conducting work or improvements on a property (whether repairs or new construction) and you are working directly for anyone other than the owner of the property.

How does a Notice to Owner protect you and your business?
In the state of Florida if you are not contracted directly by the owner of the property you should send a Notice to Owner to secure your lien rights and/or bond claim rights. Sending a Notice to Owner is a suggested part of your business process and practices if you are making improvements to the property.
When you send a Notice to Owner, you are effectively informing the owner of a property or of an improvement project that you are a subcontractor on the job. It is a way to make the owner aware that as a supplier you should be paid before payment is made to the contractor on the job.
Sending a notice will:
- Secure your bond claim rights or lien rights
- Inform all parties that have an interest in the property that you are on the job site
- Lets everyone know that you are serious about getting paid on your terms
