A lien waiver is a document drafted by a potential lien claimant such as a contractor, subcontractor, materials provider, equipment lessor or other party to the construction project (the claimant) that states they have received payment and thereby waive any future lien rights to the owner's property. Simply put, waiving a lien means giving up the right to a future lien in exchange for the payment of the potential lien amount in full or part.

Lien waivers generally fall into two categories: conditional and unconditional. A conditional waiver is effective only upon the triggering of a specific event, such as the payment check clearing. An unconditional waiver is an absolute abandonment of the claimant's right to a future lien whether or not payment is ever made to the possible claimant. North Carolina does not provide for lien waivers by statute, although waivers are still permissible and will be recognized by a state court under the principles of contract law.

An unconditional waiver upon progress payment releases all claimant rights through a specific date unconditionally (meaning that the release of rights is not dependent upon the payment clearing the bank). Because this is an unconditional waiver, only use it after a progress payment has actually been made and received.

By filing the form, the lien claimant represents that he or she either has already paid or will use the money he or she receives from this progress payment in order to make prompt payment in full to all his or her laborers, subcontractors, materialmen and suppliers for all work, materials or equipment that are the subject of this waiver and release.

Getting a lien waiver also allows property owners to shield the title to their property from the general contractor, material suppliers and subcontractors involved with a project. With a partial lien release upon a progress payment, the property owner works toward regaining clear title and the ability to obtain financing or sell the property.

The property owner should require lien and labor waivers to be submitted with the contractor's invoices and should not authorize payment of any invoice without properly signed lien and labor waivers. Proper lien waivers can protect the property owner from liens filed by the contractor's subcontractors, suppliers and laborers who might record a lien if they are not paid by the contractor.

I thought the process was fairly easy. The price was reasonable. I had a slight problem, some of the words were missing from one page of the documents when I printed it. However, after I saved it to my computer, I was able to print the page in full.

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. rnI was referred to Deeds.com and I will not use the downtown system again.

Why is Dade County not listed for the Lady Bird Deed?

Reply from Staff

Because on November 13, 1997, voters changed the name of the county from Dade to Miami-Dade.

The form was very easy to use and the sample tool you had was very helpful. the only problem i had was saving the document and then trying to find it later. I finally was able to figure out how to save it. but i still cannot find the saved document on my computer. Luckily i printed it before i closed it and did not need to make any changes.
