Alabama Conditional Waiver and Release of Lien on Final Payment

Alabama mechanic's liens are governed under Chapter 11 of the Alabama Property Code (Section 11). Throughout the construction process, potential claimants may elect to serve the property owner with a lien waiver in exchange for partial or full payment.

The term "waiver" refers to giving up a legal right. In this case, the person granting the waiver is giving up the right to seek a mechanic's lien for all or part of the amount due. This assurance is usually enough to get the other party to pay. In Alabama, there are no statutory forms for waivers although according to the principles of contract law, the parties may agree to such modifications in writing.

Waivers generally come in four varieties: conditional or unconditional, and partial or final. A conditional waiver means the waiver is conditioned upon the claimant receiving the amount due, while unconditional waivers are effective regardless if payment is actually made. Partial waivers are used to waive a lien for up to the partial or progress payment amount, and final waivers release all lien rights based on a customer's full payment.

Use a final conditional waiver when the full and final payment is made, but there are doubts about the payment method. For instance, if there are any concerns a final check won't clear, opt for a conditional waiver. This option protects the claimant's rights to lien until the payment is confirmed, at which point the waiver goes into effect.

I have not received the deed via email. That is what I was expecting.
Let me know if I am incorrect in my thinking.

Very fast and efficient. Easy to fill out but was upset the latest tax exemptions ruled in 2014 did not seem to be included. Exclusion of sale to blood relatives, etc. _ the one I needed.

Quite simple and easy.

Only one critique: It would be easier if the names of the PDF would reflect the name of the deed/form such as 'Controlling tax return' rather than '1579101185SF56863.pdf'.

However I love downloading forms rather than mail.
