Oregon Conditional Lien Waiver on Final Payment

Oregon's Construction Lien Law is codified at ORS 87.001 to 87.060 and 87.075 to 87.093.

Liens are instruments, recorded with the land records for the locality where the relevant real property is situated, that document the agreement between the owner/customer and the contractor. They identify the primary parties and generally include a description of the work requested, a tentative schedule, and an information about charges and payments.

Contractors and other authorized parties (claimants) use construction liens to protect their interests while improving someone else's property. To encourage payment, the contractor may offer to waive lien rights.

Altogether, there are four separate lien waivers: partial conditional, partial unconditional, final conditional, and final unconditional. A conditional waiver offers more protection to the lien claimant, and depends on the payment clearing the bank, meaning that there are no bounced checks or other complications. An unconditional waiver offers more protection to the owner and is effective regardless of payment receipt.

For example, let's say a customer pays the total balance due. After the payment clears the bank, the claimant completes and records a conditional waiver on final payment form, which identifies the parties, the nature of improvement, the property, and the relevant dates and payments applied. By recording, the claimant releases all rights reserved by the earlier lien.

Gary G. said: Ordered the forms I needed for my state and county and everything worked out perfectly. All the forms came with examples (filled in) and very detailed instructions for each block that required an entry. I was able to fill everything out on my computer and save the files for future use, if required. Deeds provides an excellent product. I highly recommend their products and will use their services again.

Pamela W. said: Signing up was easy and the form was amazing. The ability to type on it (I am on a MAC) was beyond my expectations, the ability to save a blank, save my two documents, save the instructions and sample was excellent. The documents are in the mail and we are hopefully they will be approved. Blessings,
