What is a Mechanic's Lien Waiver?
A lien waiver form is an efficient way to help protect yourself financially when you have paid (or you are about to pay) for a mechanic's work. The use of a lien release corm acts as tangible evidence that the mechanic has waived his or her right to a lien on your property. A Mechanic's Lien Waiver, however, should not be used if the mechanic has already tried to enforce a lien or claim, so it is best used preemptively once the work has been completed and you have made payment. A Mechanic's Lien Waiver is a fair way to help establish that you have fully paid up for a mechanic's services on your property.
When to use a Mechanic's Lien Waiver:
- You've contracted a mechanic and are ready to pay them, and want to avoid have a lien taken out against your property.
- You're a contractor and are getting paid for your work, and want to release your right to a lien on their property.
