Missouri Partial Lien Waiver

Lien waivers are used to facilitate payment between contractors, subcontractors, customers, and property owners. A waiver is a known 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.

In general, there are two types of waivers: partial and final. A partial waiver is used when a progress or partial payment is made and money is still due and owing. The waiver applies only to the partial payment amount and is conditioned upon the actual receipt of that money (the check clears the bank). A final waiver releases all rights immediately. Be cautious about using the correct form of waiver, as partial waivers provide more protection to the lien claimant, while final waivers offer more protection for the customer or property owner.

The waiver must include details identifying the parties, the location of the project, relevant details from the original agreement such as work requested, costs and changes, important dates, payments, and any exclusions, conditions, or agreements. It also lists the dates covered by the partial waiver. The person waiving the lien gives a sworn statement in front of a notary, signs the form, and then records it in the property records for the county where the property is located.

L B W. said: Bottom line - it was certainly worth the $21 (+-?) I paid for the form and instructions, etc. Admittedly the form is a little inflexible in terms of editing for readability but I understand that offering greater flexibility would likely make theft more likely. So I'm happy with what I got. One suggestion - add more info about what's required in the "Source of Title" section.
