Oregon Conditional Lien Waiver on Progress Payment

Oregon Conditional Lien Waiver on Progress Payment Information

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 up to a certain date or dollar amount.

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 makes a payment toward the total balance due and contractor offers to release a portion of the rights reserved by a recorded lien. After the payment clears the bank, the claimant completes and records a conditional waiver on progress payment form, which identifies the parties, the nature of improvement, the property, and the relevant dates and payments applied.
