It depends upon who hired you and whether the Property is a residential homestead Property.
Contractors, Subcontractors, Laborers, Equipment Suppliers, and Material Suppliers who provide labor or materials to a commercial or non-homestead residential Property are not required to have a written contract as a prerequisite to filing a Mechanics Lien.
Architects, Engineers, and Surveyors must have provided their work under or by virtue of a written contract with the Owner or the Owner’s Agent to have a right to file a Mechanics Lien.
Landscapers must have a written contract with the Property Owner, Property Owner’s Authorized Agent, General Contractor, or a Subcontractor to have a right to file a Lien.
Homestead Properties: In order to have a right to file a Lien against a residential homestead Property, the work needs to have been performed under or by virtue of a written contract (signed by both the husband and wife, if applicable).
