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.

An unconditional waiver is effective when signed and given to the property owner, and waives part of the lien amount representing the partial payment made. Unconditional waivers are effective regardless if payment is actually made. So if accepting a payment via check, only use an unconditional waiver if there are no doubts about whether the check will clear the bank.

My E-deed was not excepted by the county, so I had to snail mail the documents to the recorders office. Will probably not use this site again, as it did not fulfill my purpose, but would recommend to those who do not have complicated forms.

I ordered the Deed package for my state of NJ and the county I needed to prepare the documents. I was able to complete everything that is required to close on an investment property. Fast easy with step by step instructions no matter your situation. Definitely will recommend to family & friends. Save $ instead of paying others to do the same thing you can do yourself.

5stars for prompt and fast! Website needs work. Hard to navigate for first time users and hard to find where to pay. Emails are more clear than the "message center". Not sure what happened to my other documents, lol

These forms made it so easy to update the property deed and the instructions and sample filled out form were most helpful. You might want to add some brief information on when or why to use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity notary form. In my case the notary was required to use it but also filled in the brief notarize section on the Affidavit as well. She said the one on the Affidavit had some value because it showed she had witnessed the my signature. But this was only after I suggested both be filled in as she initially thought to just strike through it and just use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity form.

Easement deed contract was easy to complete, however after additional research raises some concerns because the Ohio deed does not list a requirement for witness signatures and does not provide lines or an area for witness signatures. The document does provide the necessary area for the notary information and the grantor and grantee.

I am still in the trial stage. I am an older lawyer. Any help I can get is worth it. Once you get used to the format and data fill in the deed thing is excellent. Very professional if not a little slow. I have only done three deeds in one state so I will have to see how it goes. I like the product and their attitude towards pleasing the customer. We'll see when I try the recording part.
