F.S. 679.709
679.709 Priority.
(1) This act determines the priority of conflicting claims to collateral. However, if the relative priorities of the claims were established before this act takes effect, chapter 679, Florida Statutes 2000, determines priority.
(2) For purposes of s. 679.322(1), the priority of a security interest that becomes enforceable under s. 679.2031 of this act dates from the time this act takes effect if the security interest is perfected under this act by the filing of a financing statement before this act takes effect which would not have been effective to perfect the security interest under chapter 679, Florida Statutes 2000. This subsection does not apply to conflicting security interests each of which is perfected by the filing of such a financing statement.
