Full Conditional Waiver

 

A waiver should always be given by a contractor, subcontractor or supplier when payment is made. In simple terms, it is a receipt for payment. Most importantly, it announces to the homeowner that the construction lien rights are being relinquished - either in full (if full payment is received) or in part (if partial payment was received).

The owner, lessee or designee shall not rely on a full or partial unconditional or conditional waiver of lien provided by a person other than the lien claimant named in the waiver if the lien claimant has either provided a notice of furnishing under section 109 or is excused from filing the notice of furnishing under section 108 or 108A, unless the owner, lessee or designee FIRST verifies the authenticity of the lien waiver with the lien claimant, either in writing, by telephone or personally.

Waivers are legal documents and must use prescribed wording. To be considered legal documents, and to serve the purpose for which they were designed, use the appropriate type of waiver. Be certain that the waiver signed is appropriate to the situation.

A Full Conditional Waiver  states that, as soon as full payment is received, or some condition of payment as agreed upon is met, there will be no claim of lien against the homeowners' property.
