Alabama Unconditional 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 portion of lien rights 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 partial unconditional waiver when the owner makes less than the full or final payment and the contractor is not worried about confirming the payment method. Be sure to note any exceptions to which the waiver will not apply. An unconditional waiver is effective when signed and given to the property owner, and waives a portion of the lien amount representing the partial payment made. Note that if accepting a payment via check, a conditional waiver makes more sense if there are doubts about whether the check will clear the bank.

This makes it so easy and I'm so glad I found you.

I visited two other sites before I found this one. They were cumbersome to use to the point where I abandoned them and kept on looking. Then I found yours, and it was a breeze. Thank you so much!
