Lien Waivers

A lien waiver confirms that a contractor, subcontractor, or vendor has been paid a specific amount and thereby waives any prospective claim on that portion of the property's worth. If a subcontractor is paid $50,000 for their services on a job, they may submit a lien waiver stating that they will not contest $50,000 of the value they added to the property. Lien waivers can be conditional or unconditional, and they can be used for partial or full payment.
