Lien waivers are documents that waive or release the right to file a lien in exchange for payment. They serve as proofs of payment and are legally enforceable documents. Lien waivers come in two forms: Conditional and Unconditional.

  • Conditional lien waivers are provided by contractors or suppliers before they have been paid, and releases their right to file a lien on the work "upon payment" up until a certain date.

  • Unconditional lien waivers are provided by contractors or suppliers once they have been paid, and officially negates their right to file a lien on the work since payment has been received.
