Mechanic's liens are governed under Title 10, Chapter 603 of the Maine Code. A waiver is a forfeiture or "giving up" of a legal right. In this case, the person granting the waiver is giving up 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. The Maine Code does not set out statutory forms for waivers, but according to the principles of contract law, the parties may agree to such modifications in writing.

In general, there are four types of waivers: conditional or unconditional, and referring to a partial or final payment. Conditional waivers become effective when the payment is confirmed (paid) by the bank, and offer more protection for the contractor. Unconditional waivers go into effect immediately, regardless of whether or not the payment is confirmed, and offer more protection for the property owner. Partial, or progress payments relate to specific time frames or completed steps in the project. Final payment waivers apply when the responsible party pays the entire balance due.

Use the final unconditional waiver when a full and final payment is made and collectability of the due amount is not an issue. Only grant an unconditional waiver 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.

Lien waivers identify the parties, the location of the project, relevant dates, and amounts paid. Record the signed, notarized waiver in the local recording office, and deliver a certified copy of the recorded document to the property owner.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

I never could even think to solve an important issue involving even overseas individuals without even a lawyer within 24 h. This service works for real and I'll keep using it from now for any future needs, referring to and proposing it as a legitimate, trusted real Optimus service. I'm extremely satisfied and being a Public Official myself I got to say that these guys have really impressed me!

I thought the forms were good but expensive, Spending almost 30 dollars for a 3 page form was a stiff price to pay. I won't be getting any more
