Mechanic's Lien Waiver Basics

If you've paid, or are just about to pay, a mechanic for work they have completed, you can get them to sign a Mechanic's Lien Waiver to help protect yourself from future claims for payment. When you hire a contractor, subcontractor, or supplier, they have a right to put a lien on your property if you don't pay. With a Mechanic's Lien Waiver (in exchange for your payment), the mechanic will agree to release any lien, or other claim, that they may have against the property they've worked on.

Use the Mechanic's Lien Waiver document if:

  • 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.

A Mechanic's Lien Waiver 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 this document 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.
