Kentucky Partial Unconditional Lien Waiver Information

Mechanic's liens are governed under Chapter 376 of Kentucky Revised Statutes (K.R.S.). Although Kentucky law doesn't provide a required format for a waiver, claimants can use various types of lien waivers in order to simplify payments between contractors, subcontractors, customers, and property owners. A waiver is a knowing 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.

Lien waivers are generally either based on a partial/progress payment or a final payment, and may be conditional or unconditional. Partial waivers release a portion of the lien rights, determined by the amount paid. Final waivers release all lien rights because the balance is paid in full. Conditional waivers give more protection to the claimant, and are dependent on any payments clearing the bank. Unconditional waivers give the advantage to the party responsible for paying, and take effect immediately upon recording, regardless of whether or not the bank covers the check.

Regardless of their nature, waivers must identify the parties, a description of the location and type of goods and/or services provided, significant dates, fees, and payments. Record the completed waiver in the office responsible for maintaining the land records for the county where the subject property is located.

A partial unconditional waiver is also used when a progress or partial payment is made, but signifies that lien rights are waived to the extent of the amount paid or purported to be paid. The waiver is not conditioned upon the actual receipt of that money, and the right to seek a lien for that amount is forfeited regardless of payment actually going through.
