For property owners, collecting lien waivers means making sure all contractors on a project got paid and there won’t be a surprise lien on their property. For those requesting lien waivers, like General Contractors, it helps maintain good relationships between them and property owners that they pay their subs and suppliers. For Subcontractors and Suppliers, sending waivers means getting paid faster and fairly.

There are four types of lien waivers (conditional vs unconditional lien waivers and progress vs. final lien waivers) that should be exchanged at different stages of a project and 12 U.S. states actually have specific lien waiver forms statutorily required to be valid (including California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona). Using the wrong form could invalidate the lien waiver if questioned in court should a payment problem arise.
