What is the Pennsylvania Unconditional Lien Waiver on Progress Payment

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.

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).

This Unconditional Waiver and Release of Lien on Progess Payment should be used when a partial or progress payment is made for any amount due on a residential job only and in return for the payment, the contractor agrees to waive a lien right towards the partial amount. Because the waiver is unconditional, it should only be used when the partial payment has been made and after verification of such payment.

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.

Please speak with a Pennsylvania attorney familiar with lien laws for questions regarding lien waivers or any other issues with mechanic's liens.

Super impressed!! For me to get back my recorded document in one day was awesome. I needed it for a foreclosure and knew if I mailed it in to the Clerk's office I more than likely would not get it back in time. Also the fact that you had no problem with me having a one-time document to record is a plus. I will be using you in the future for my recording needs. Thank you.

mostly good; however, you need to update the annual exclusion gift amount from $14,000 to $15,000 (where it has ben for several years), and you need to make your Gift Deed final paragraph be gender neutral like "they" or "he or she" rather than just"he". We women lawyers and our women clients appreciate that.
