Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Just because a lien expires, that does not extinguish the debt itself. The debt is for breach of contract and the statute of limitations for them enforcing breach of contract in FL is 5 years from the date the breach occurred. So the COA has 5 years to sue her for the money.
