In Pennsylvania, a contractor or subcontractor may waive his right to file a claim against residential property by a written instrument signed by him or by any conduct which operates equitably to estop such contractor from filing a claim. 49 P.S. 401(a).

Contractors use lien waivers to forfeit or give up their right to claim a mechanic's lien. Usually, the purpose of a waiver is to alleviate concerns by a property owner or other contractor that a lien will be levied on the property. In return for waiving lien rights, the owner or other party makes a full or partial payment. The type of waiver used depends on the type of payment made.

Use a conditional waiver when payment hasn't been made at the time of the waiver or the payment method takes time to clear (such as a check or bank draft). Unconditional waivers are appropriate when a full or final payment has been made and evidence of the payment can be verified. Within each of these two categories, waivers can be granted for a full payment or a partial (or progress) payment.

A waiver by a contractor of lien rights is against public policy, unlawful and void unless given in consideration for payment for the work, services, materials or equipment provided and only to the extent that such payment is actually received. 49 P.S. 401(b). Therefore, waivers will not be recognized by a Pennsylvania court unless payment is made and received. Also, conditional waivers are only available for residential property. In this regard, Pennsylvania grants more protection to parties using lien waivers (and less for the property owner).

In regard to subcontractors, a waiver by a subcontractor of lien rights is against public policy, unlawful and void, unless given in consideration for payment for the work, services, materials or equipment provided and only to the extent that such payment is actually received, or unless the contractor has posted a bond guaranteeing payment for labor and materials provided by subcontractors. 49 P.S. 401(c).

Use the Conditional Waiver and Release of Lien on Progress Payment when a partial payment is made towards the total amount due. In return for the payment, the contractor agrees to waive a lien right towards the partial amount. Because the waiver is conditional, it should be used when the payment hasn't been made or payment is made through a check and some additional time is needed to make sure the bank has properly processed the payment. If the payment is not made within the time allotted for in the waiver, the waiver becomes invalid and the claimant may seek a lien for that amount.

A valid waiver identifies the parties, the location where the work or improvement took place, relevant dates, and amounts paid. In addition, the form must meet state and local standards for recorded documents. Submit the completed waiver to the recording office for the county where the property is situated.

Mechanic's Liens are governed by Title 49 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes.

I bought a Quitclaim Deed package for Fayette County, Kentucky, to transfer my house into a Living Trust that I had set up previously. Creating my Quitclaim Deed was pretty straightforward, using the form, the instructions, and the sample Quitclaim Deed. I signed my Quitclaim Deed at a nearby Notary Public, then took it to the Fayette County Clerk's office to be recorded. The clerk there asked me to make two small changes to the Quitclaim Deed, which she let me do in pen on the spot:
* In the signature block for the receiver of the property, filled in "Capacity" as "Grantee as Trustee ______________________________ Living Trust".
* In the notary's section, changed "were acknowledged before me" to "were acknowledged and sworn to before me".

Generally, once the documents are completed and executed they are recorded with the recorder where the property is located.

Communication is hard. The reps need to be empowered and encouraged to call the customers when necessary. They encourage 300 dpi resolution and under 2 MB PDF file, which is not even possible with our scanner. They made a vague comment about a legal description looking abbreviated but did not explain. They refused to call me. They said the county said "Image is light please darken", but the image looked fine to me. Maybe not their fault, but they refused to help work with the county on that for me. I followed their suggestion though and re-scanned at 300 dpi, but they misunderstood me and did not re-submit it right away. Over 48 hours later, it's still not recorded yet. I hope it will be today.
