Mistakes to Avoid

In Florida, for a judgment to become a lien on real property, a certified copy of it must be recorded in the official records of that county, Florida Statutes also requires that the address of the person who has a lien (i.e. the plaintiff) be contained in the judgment or an affidavit simultaneously recorded with the judgment; failure to do so could invalidate your lien rights.

Additionally, the statute requires the filing of a judgment lien certificate with the Florida Secretary of State to establish priority with respect to a judgment debtor’s interest in personal property which may be subject to seizure by way of a sheriff’s levy.

Judgment or Judgement ?

In Florida, it’s usually spelled “judgment”, but both are acceptable variations of the same word.

One thing is for sure, either way you spell it,  Judgment or Judgement, our attorneys have had years of experience recovering all kinds.
