AnswerI don't believe there is a statute of limitations on a lien that has been properly filed. Rules vary depending on the contract that allowed the lien to be filed on the property. Typically there is a waiting period defined. ClarificationThe above is not correct if you are referring to improvements to residential property.

If the lien you are speaking of is the result of construction which improves your home in Florida you can be guided by F.S. 713 .22. Generally, the lien will last 1 year after the claim of lien is recorded. It will lapse after that period if no action is taken by the lienor to enforce the lien. An owner can shorten the time period if he chooses.

A lien holder of a properly recorded and perfected lien can sue to foreclose on the lien and force your property to be sold "on the courthouse steps".

If a claim of lien has been recorded against your property you should immediately seek the advice of a lawyer familiar with construction law in Florida.

Is Florida a lien theory state or a title theory state?

Florida is a lien theory state. You are the title holder of any property you purchase and your deed must be recorded in the land records. If you borrow money to purchase the property you must sign a note and mortgage. The lender will record the mortgage and it will become a lien on the property. If you default on the mortgage the lender may foreclose through a court action and have the property sold by the court.


Can a vendor's lien holder foreclose on real estate property due to default in the state of Texas?

If you are the lien holder, and someone doesn't pay, then yes, you can foreclose. I handle around 50 foreclosures each month, in 3 separate counties in Texas. We use a Warranty Deed With Vendor's Lein, Deed of Trust, and a Promissory Note, then when our customers do not pay their note for a long period of time, then we foreclose on it.

Can the second mortgage holder force the sell of your home?

Yes. If you do not pay the 2nd mortgage, you can lose your home in a foreclosure sale. The difference between the first and 2nd mortgage holder in that case varies according to the unit of government. The law in the United States is according to state law. At one time in this state, the first mortgage holder had certain rights concerning whether or not to foreclose. There was a time period when the first mortgage holder had the chance to try to sell the first mortgage or something like that. I have not kept up with all the changes in the law involving second mortgages. Still, when there is a foreclosure, the first mortgage holder gets paid off first. If there is anything left, the second mortgage holder gets paid. Some commercial property has as much as a fifth mortgage.


What is the the statute of limitation on a quiet title in the state of Florida?

Quoted from Answers.com; Wikipedia Florida has no redemption period. The winning bidder is provided a tax deed. A quiet title action must still be filed to obtain title insurance, however a tax deed in Florida is a sellable title. The title to the property becomes fully insurable four years after the date of the tax deed sale. Cases in which individuals were able to recover their property after a tax deed auction in Florida are extremely rare. They will take a court action and an extensive period of time. Also in Florida any improvements made on the property during the time the tax deed holder is in possession of the property must be reimbursed by the original owner should they be successful in their lawsuit to recover their property.
