Alabama Unconditional 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 the final unconditional waiver when a full and final payment is made and collectability of the amount due is not an issue. Only grant an unconditional waiver when payment is made through a verified method. The waiver is effective up to the full amount due and the claimant waives any lien rights without condition. This type of waiver is more favorable to property owners, so contractors or materials suppliers should exercise extreme caution and ensure payment is received before granting one.

The Website was easy to use.
I live in Houston Texas and mother recently passed away in California and I need affidavit of joint tenant forms.
I was provided all the forms necessary to complete the documents.
I had been a legal secretary in California about 20 years ago and just need the current forms and received them all very quickly.
