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.

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, best practices dictate using an unconditional waiver if there are doubts about whether the check will clear the bank.

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.

The Deed of trust form was fine but the promissory note was less user friendly since I needed to change a few things that were fixed in the template. I ended up using white-out after I got no response when I emailed the help site that was provided in one of your emails, so it looks a little odd but should be usable
