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.

This article is offered for informational purposes only and is not legal advice. This information should not be relied upon as a substitute for speaking with an attorney. Please speak with a Pennsylvania attorney familiar with lien laws for questions regarding lien waivers or any other issues with mechanic's liens.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

These products would be more useful if they final deed could be copied and pasted into a word document for proper formatting. Because most of the document is protected against selecting and copying, I did not find it useful. I would not purchase again.

This was our first time using Deeds.Com. We were tremendously impressed. The website works well, but the customer service really makes this organization special. The prompt, professional and knowledgeable responses to inquiries and recording issues was refreshing.

One stop shopping for your Deed needs. Downloaded the forms and filled them out with ease following the step by step instructions. Saved me hundreds of dollars for not having to hire an attorney to do the exact same thing.

Five star rating. I requested a copy of the deed to my house and it arrived very quickly and for a fraction of the cost that it would have cost me on other sites. Great company. Will do business again. Five stars.

It's worth the money. I would like to have seen a variety of examples showing different scenarios for completing a quitclaim deed.

I needed a quitclaim deed to transfer ownership of a home. An attorney wanted $400.00 to file the deed. I downloaded a blank deed for my area from deeds.com. I received it instantly. (Small fee) it came with instructions and a template. I filled it out and submitted it to the County Clerks office.it was simple and I saved a lot of money. There may be other forms you need, check with whoever you are submitting the deed.
You'll have additional fees, but that is up to the municipality in which you reside. It will be helpful if you have the latest deed on file.
It was much easier than I thought. This is an easy website to navigate through and it is 100% legitimate. I recommend Deeds.com.
