Florida Notice of Commencement (NOC), Permits, and Streamlined Remote Online Notarization with Secured Signing

If you are a contractor or subcontractor in Florida, you must be familiar with the term “notice of commencement” or NOC. But what exactly is a notice of commencement, and why is it important for your construction project? In this article, we will explore the purpose of NOCs and how Secured Signing can help you with secure digital signatures and a streamlined Remote Online Notarization platform for your NOCs and permits.

What is a Notice of Commencement? 

A notice of commencement is a legal document filed with the county clerk’s office in the county where a construction project takes place. Typically filed by the property owner or general contractor, it serves as public notice that construction work is underway.

When is a Notice of Commencement Required? 

In Florida, a notice of commencement is mandated for any construction project exceeding $2,500 in value, including new construction, renovations, and improvements to existing structures. It must be filed before work begins.

NOC's with Secured Signing

Challenges in Traditional Signing Processes 

Obtaining signatures and Notary stamps for NOCs and permits using traditional methods poses several challenges for construction companies:

  • “In-Person Meetings”: Stakeholders, including property owners, contractors, Notary, and inspectors, frequently necessitate in-person meetings for the signing and notarization of these documents, leading to delays and additional costs associated with travel and coordination.

  • “Paperwork and Documentation”: The management of physical paperwork can be cumbersome, elevating the risk of misplacement or the loss of crucial documents.

  • “Time-Consuming Processes”: Traditional signing methods often result in significant delays in project timelines, impacting construction schedules and potentially incurring financial penalties.
