Unconditional Waiver and Release of Lien on Final Payment

In Maryland, mechanic's liens are governed under Chapter 9 of the Maryland Real Property Code. The term "waiver" refers to giving up 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. Maryland does not use statutory forms for waivers; according to the principles of contract law, the parties may agree to such modifications in writing. Maryland law, however, specifically prohibits any waiver requirement in a contract. Md. Real Prop. Code sections 9-113.

Typically, waivers come in four varieties: unconditional after a progress payment, unconditional after the final payment, conditional after a progress payment, and conditional after the final payment. Unconditional means the waiver is granted immediately, while conditional waivers depend on the property owner meeting specific requirements (conditions), such as the payment clearing the bank, before the waiver takes effect. So, unconditional waivers benefit the owner, and conditional waivers tend to favor the claimant. The payment distinctions are based on the amount due on the project, so progress payment refers to money paid on account, and final payment waivers are used once the balance is paid in full.

A valid lien waiver identifies the parties, the location of the project, relevant dates and payments, and any other information necessary for the specific transaction. After signing the form, the claimant records it with the local agency responsible for maintaining land records.

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.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

My biggest complaint is I did not know when my document was ready until I got this survey. An email should be sent to say document is ready.

Sorry about that David. We will look into better email notifications. Hope you have a great day.

I downloaded the Lady Bird deed. The process was quick and easy to download. Just select your county, fill out the form. You will need the property description from your original deed. In my case I had to go downtown Wayne County (Detroit). (Make an appt online). 1st you will have to get the property tax certified to ensure all taxes are paid to date (5th floor at the Wayne County Treasurer office). Give them the form you just filled out and they will stamp certified $5. After that take the form to the Register of Deeds (7th floor) appt needed. $18. Make sure it is properly notarized and all signatures completed. Once approved, they will scan it, stamp it, give it back with a receipt and mail a copy also. All Done. Worked beautifully. My co worker go a lawyer and paid over $250. I just used deeds.com and total for forms and going downtown with notarizing was less than $40 Yea!
