What happens if a contractor records a lien waiver, but the owner never pays the bill?

Best practices dictate that lien claimants should only grant waivers when payment can be verified. Even so, some claimants still choose to execute a waiver before that time. Unlike many other states, Georgia law provides an avenue for recourse: the Affidavit of Non-Payment. An affidavit of non-payment is a sworn statement filed with the county recorder after a lien waiver has already been filed but no payment was ever received.

When executed, a waiver and release of lien is considered binding against the claimant for all purposes, subject only to payment in full of the amount set forth in the waiver and release. 44-14-366(f)(1). This means if payment is never received, the waiver is considered ineffective. Note that, in order to declare the waiver void, the claimant must file an affidavit of non-payment.

An affidavit of non-payment identifies the parties, the nature of work and materials provided, the location of the improvements, the amount unpaid, and the recording information for the waiver. The affiant/claimant signs the document in front of two witnesses, one of whom must be a notary, then submits the completed affidavit to the same office that recorded the original lien and waiver.

The affidavit must be filed sixty days after the date of the execution of the waiver and release. 44-14-366(f)(2)(C). There's an exception to this requirement if the claimant files their lien claim prior to the expiration of the 60-day period. Id.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

It would be helpful if there were a specific example of putting a deed into a trust. Also, the limitation of characters on the description of the property was not enough.

On multiple tries, I could not get validation mail through my Yahoo email address. I tried Gmail, worked the first time. The rest of the process was super easy and fast.

Their customer service is impressive to say the least. I sent them an email and I received a response that the issue had been resolved in under an hour. They even apologized for the inconvenience. I haven't used the forms I purchased yet but if they are anything like their Customer service, I know I will be extremely satisfied with my purchase. I will definitely return here for ALL my needs they can provide for in the future.

Downloaded and used the Ladybird Warranty Deed for a county in Florida with no issues. Cost for the download and subsequent recording fee of the deed totaled less than $40. No reason to pay hundreds. I assume the subsequent transfer upon death will go smoothly, but I of course, will never know. The "example" of a completed form was very beneficial. Also, get a copy of the current deed and make sure legal description of real estate is exactly the same on the new deed.
