Introduction to Lien Waiver Forms

Free Lien Waiver Forms for All 50 States

For those unaware, only twelve (12) States out of 50 (see sidebar) have statutory lien laws that provide the exact language to use on lien waivers in which event the statute almost always invalidates any waiver of lien that fails to fully comply with the law. While the courts may allow for subtle stylistic or formatting changes, neither party is allowed to make any changes to the substance of the document. Thus, to ensure full compliance with a State that has statutory lien laws and provide the same level of protection required by the statute, an EasyPDF™ lien waiver employs the same exact language, word-for-word, extracted from the statute of the State in which it is to be used. As for the 38 States that don't provide statutory lien laws, it appears to be a crap shoot given the language used therein more often than not appears to favor the party for whom it was drafted. This being the case, our advice is to consult an attorney to ensure your lien rights are protected and you're not unknowingly signing away your rights by submitting a signed unconditional waiver of lien containing language you don't fully understand or one you haven't read when you have yet to get paid. In the event you have any reservations whatsoever signing an unconditional lien waiver, it's best to err on the side of caution by refusing to sign it. While on the subject of lien waivers, we also provide a Free generic conditional/unconditional lien waiver for both final and progressive payments in States without statutory lien laws. Finally, while there used to be three States requiring notarization of lien waivers by law, two presently remain, namely Mississippi and Wyoming, given Texas abolished their notarization requirement in 2021. Last but not least, those not residing in Mississippi or Wyoming can take advantage of technology available—such as electronic digital signatures acceptable in a court of law in all 50 States for well over the past 10 years—to further reduce the time taken to submit a properly completed and signed lien waiver.

Moving on, the Free digital Lien Waiver Forms we offer (Scroll down to view sample lien waivers provided), provide the same level of form features to eliminate redundancy, enhance efficiency, and increase productivity as already explained in 'Introduction to EasyPDF™ Forms' presented elsewhere on our website. This in turn allows a lien waiver in digital format to be completed, digitally signed, and sent to a recipient in an email file attachment under a minute— in States where a notary is not required—as opposed to a half hour or more. Moreover, completing and submitting a subsequent lien waiver for the same construction project often takes less than a minute. For example, assuming you have completed and submitted a lien waiver for a previous progress payment in which event you saved the lien waiver in PDF format, you need only open the former lien waiver form and edit the payment and date fields to accommodate the next lien waiver to be submitted for a progress or final payment. Given the number of form fields to be changed to complete, sign, date, and submit the subsequent lien waiver shouldn't really take more than 15 seconds at most.

Last but not least, we provide conditional/unconditional lien waivers for each and every State including the seal of the State for which its intended, absolutely Free. Moreover, unlike other lien waiver digital forms on the market such as that provided by Levelset, our digital lien forms provide form features to simplify and facilitate completion and submission of the form.
