What is the Iowa Unconditional Waiver on Final Payment?

Mechanic's liens are governed under Chapter 572 of Iowa Code. A waiver is a conscious relinquishment of a right. In this case, the person granting the waiver is relinquishing 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 Iowa, there are no statutory forms for waivers although according to the principles of contract law, the parties may agree to such modifications in writing.

Generally, waivers come in four varieties: conditional or unconditional, and based on a partial/progress or final payment. Conditional waivers only become effective after the responsible party's check clears the bank on which it was drawn, and provide more protection for the claimants. Unconditional waivers go into effect immediately, tend to favor the owners' interests, and should only be used after payment is confirmed. Waiving lien rights after a partial payment allows the claimant to retain some lien rights, but to release others based on the amount paid on the overall balance due. Waivers upon final payments remove the claimant's eligibility to place a lien because they state that the account is paid in full.

Regardless of the nature, waivers must identify the parties, the location of the project, relevant dates, and payments.

Use the final unconditional waiver when a full and final payment is made and collectability of the amount due amount is not an issue. The unconditional waiver should only be granted 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 article is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as a substitute for the advice from a legal professional. Please contact an Iowa attorney with any questions about sending notice to property owners or anything else with regard to mechanic's liens.

Name: Jena S.

Review: I love how quick the turnaround is, my only request would be for an email notification be sent once an invoice is ready and then once a document is recorded and ready to download (only because I have a large caseload and it's very easy to forget things sometimes).

Name: John v.

Review: Process is well laid out, clear and concise. Check out is easy. Recommendations: * Assign names to the downloadable files that are meaningful, such as: WARRANTY DEED instead of the useless and cryptic 1420490866F11417.pdf. * Provide a ONE BUTTON DOWNLOAD for all forms ordered. It's aggravating to have to click on each of the 20 documents and download them individually.
