Arizona Unconditional Lien Waiver on Progress Payment

Arizona Unconditional Lien Waiver on Progress Payment Information

Lien waivers are part of the Arizona mechanic's lien process. The waiver, given by a contractor, subcontractor, materials supplier or other party to the construction project (the claimant) acknowledging receipt of payment and waiving any future lien rights to the owner's property. Lien waivers are governed under Arizona Revised Statute 33-1008.

In Arizona, lien waivers require strict compliance with the statute and any document purported to waive a lien must follow the statutory format. AZ REV. STAT. 33-1008(A). Any contract or other form attempting to waive lien rights is void as a matter of law. Id. Additionally, lien waivers filed in the state require evidence of actual payment when the waiver is conditioned on receipt of payment. Id.

There are two classifications of lien waivers: conditional and unconditional. Within either class, there are subcategories of "partial" and "final" waivers. Unconditional waivers do not require payment confirmation, but conditional waivers are effective only when payment is received, usually verified by a check clearing the bank. So, an unconditional waiver given after a partial payment releases a portion the claimant's right to lien, regardless of whether or not after any check used to pay the bill clears the bank.

The waiver must contain details identifying the job/project, the amount and type of payment, including the name of the person who wrote any checks, the property owner, the location and a description of the work, relevant dates, and the claimant's signature. 33-1008(D)(2).

Molly S. said: I used deeds.com to record a deed because the recording office closed due to Covid 19. It was easy to sign up and upload the documents I needed recorded and within 24 hours possibly even less, the deeds were recorded. I am very happy with the service and the $15 fee was affordable and worth every penny to get it done so quickly.

Linda C. said: If I hadn't spent my career as an escrow officer (albeit in another state), I may have had a hard time figuring out exactly which deed I needed and how to prepare them, even with the back-up informational, how-to pdf documents, without an attorney. My experience speaks to how much the general public doesn't understand and how confusing it can be. Nonetheless, the access to so many documents at a fairly reasonable cost, the basic how-to docs made available along with the purchased doc makes all the difference. I appreciate having such things available to the public. Many thanks.

chris m. said: Was warned by attorney that forms from internet have lots of mistakes. But after looking all over, took a chance on here. So far, I am satisfied, and actually happy that I got something that (I believe) meets my state and local requirements. Haven't filed the deed yet, or had to put it into effect, but being able to pick the local area, and have the relevant state law listed on the deed, gives me confidence. Also, got the whole package of possibly relevant forms, and a very good guide how to prep the deed with a sample completed deed - greatly appreciated!
