Transfer of Lien to Bond

If you wish to transfer a lien to bond, you must provide a recorded copy of the Claim of Lien being bonded together with a cashier's check pursuant to Chapter 713 of the Florida Statutes. Fees for the amount of the bond are calculated in the following manner: the amount of the claim of lien, plus interest at the legal rate for a 3-year period, plus $1,000.00 or 25% of the lien amount, whichever is greater.

In addition to the cash bond, a check is required for the recording and notification fees. Contact our office for the total amount due.  Current Recording fees are listed in Fees & Costs.

If you are bonding out with a surety bond and not a cash bond, please allow an additional fee for the approval of the bond by the Deputy Clerk.

If the transaction involves the transfer of multiple liens, an additional charge for each additional lien shall be charged. Any number of liens may be transferred to one such security.
