Lien waivers are recorded documents used to inform a property owner and any other interested parties that the person or firm with a potential mechanic's lien right is giving up the right to file that lien in exchange for full or partial payment. Use these documents carefully, because the right to a mechanic's lien is regarded as sacred in the realm on the construction world. Unlike most other states, Georgia takes a different approach to its lien waivers, declaring them void unless payment has been received. O.C.G.A. 44-14-366(b).

Georgia recognizes two major types of waivers: The Interim Waiver and Release upon Payment and the Waiver and Release upon Final Payment. O.C.G.A. 44-14-366. These two waivers also fit into the minor categories of being conditioned or not conditioned on actual receipt of payment (included a cleared check). The latter categories can have a tremendous effect on lien rights, as sending an unconditional waiver will waive the right to a lien regardless of confirmed payment.

In addition to requiring payment first, Georgia law prohibits preliminary waivers of lien rights before beginning the work: A right to claim a lien or to claim upon a bond may not be waived in advance of furnishing of labor, services, or materials. O.C.G.A. 44-14-366(a). Any purported waiver or release of lien or bond claim or of this Code section executed or made in advance of furnishing of labor, services, or materials is null, void, and unenforceable. Id.

To surrender all rights to a lien, a claimant files a Waiver and Release upon Final Payment. Use this form when a claimant is requested to execute a waiver and release in exchange for or to induce the making of final payment. O.C.G.A. 44-14-366(d).

The form identifies the parties, the location, the nature of the work, relevant dates, and the amount of payment.

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.

Really fast turn around time, and was provided exactly what I was looking for this time. This is my first experience with this site. It would have been cool to also get a document depicting/describing a property line, but like I said before, exactly what I was looking for this time.
