Hey, all. I've continued my research into building my future pool, and I have read of some bad experiences some homeowners have had with pool builders, and their subcontractors. Namely, homeowner paying pool builder, pool builder not paying subcontractor, and subcontractor filing mechanic's lien against homeowner's property.
I have learned of the importance of subs signing lien release forms... Where do I get those with the proper verbage? What do I need to insist to be in my contract with the poolbuilder to protect myself? What other things do I need to take into consideration?
I realize that in many of these instances, the laws vary from state to state... I am located in FL, and looking for information that particularly pertains to here. Can anyone on here that has had a pool built in FL please comment?
I would also like to hear from anyone else in other states as well. Again, I am aware that this stuff is not universally applicable, but I would like to hear general safeguards to protect myself from anyone that would care to contribute. Thanks in advance.
