What is the Massachusetts Contractor Partial Waiver and Subordination of Lien

Massachusetts Contractors Partial Waiver and Subordination of Lien

The Contractor's Partial Waiver and Subordination of Lien form is useful for situations where a contractor seeks a partial payment to waive lien rights up to a specific date.

Lien waivers are used between contractors (also subcontractors and suppliers) and property owners as a quid-pro-quo arrangement between the contractor and owner. The purpose of a waiver is to influence payment from the owner in return for the contractor waiving future mechanic's lien rights.

In Massachusetts, any promise or agreement that bars the filing of a Notice of Contract is void and unenforceable, but that prohibition does not apply to full or partial lien waivers or dissolutions of liens. M.G.L. Ch. 254, 32. Therefore, the parties can use waivers to facilitate payment and ease concerns of hidden liens.

In general, Massachusetts recognizes four types of lien waivers: Partial Waiver by Contractor, Full Conditional Waiver by Contractor, Partial Waiver by Subcontractor, and Full Conditional Waiver by Subcontractor. Id. As their titles suggest, contractors should use a contractor's waiver and subcontractors should use a waiver designated for a subcontractor. Partial lien waivers should be provided upon a partial or progress payment and the waiver only applies to forfeit lien rights according to the terms stated within it.

Lawful waivers identify the parties to the contract, the claimant, the property, the nature of work, relevant dates, payment information, and anything else necessary for clarity or to meet local requirements. The claimant (or authorized representative) must sign the completed waiver in front of a notary, then submit the document to the recording office for the county where the property is located.

Using lien waivers properly can ensure smoother relations between the parties on a construction job and alleviate and feelings of mistrust or concern. This article is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as a substitute for advice from an attorney. Please speak with a Massachusetts attorney if you have any questions about lien waivers or for any other issues concerning mechanic's liens.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

I did this on a desktop using a scanned .pdf file. Simple, straight-forward, excellent instructions, easy, fast, and well documented for each step. From account creation to proof of recording: 4 hours... from the comfort of my home. I would highly recommend this service to anyone, including - and maybe especially - those who are looking for fast recording who aren't well versed in computers and on-line processes. Well done in all ways.

I could not be happier with the service. Shortly after I uploaded my documents, my package was prepared and invoiced. It was only minutes before the document was recorded with the County I selected and returned to me with their seal for download.

This suited my purposes just fine. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. But,I would like to have had the ability to delete the many extra spaces on the final document ... for readability purposes.

My rating is not a 5. Although it had good instructions, it would NOT print the whole document no matter how many times I inputted the names. I ended up writing it in to complete.
I also recommend putting it on one page. I had to pay an additional fees per page and if I had to notarize it, why did I have to find 2 witnesses as well.
I deserve a discount for the time I spent repeatedly putting the same data. I was trying to save money since Im on social security only. It didnt. Get it to work correctly

This is my first time using this amazing service. I wish I was told about this before I went all the way downtown, drove thru construction zones, paid for parking only to be told the computer system had crashed. \r\nI was referred to Deeds.com and I will not use the downtown system again.
