Conditional Waiver and Release of Lien on Progress 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.

Partial waivers are used to waive a lien for up to the partial or progress payment amount. A conditional waiver means the waiver is conditioned upon the claimant receiving the amount due. Use the partial conditional waiver when the owner makes less than the full or final payment and the payment method does not guarantee receipt of the money (such as a check that hasn't cleared yet). Be sure to note any exceptions to which the waiver will not apply. This type of waiver offers more protection for the contractor or materials supplier.

I think Deeds is a great site for learning. On recording a document, I had trouble. It was me, because I was new to the site.

I got exactly what I paid for. No fraudulent transaction on my card. I like that. This is an excellent service. Straight and to the point help. That e-recording process looks like a winner. When I get my forms filled out I might use that.

not enough room for legal description. Wouldn't allow me to enter widow status in owner box. Not clear who to send it to so I printed it out and will ask the notary who I use for recording it.

Wonderful forms. It's nice that they were formatted perfectly for my county, it's real easy to miss a requirement (margines, font size, and so on) and end up with a rejection or higher recording fee. Good job folks!
