Construction Lien Waivers - #3 Conditional
Waiver Upon Final Pay
When you submit your final invoice, you'll include a " Conditional
Waiver and Release Upon Final Payment " (aka " release
#3 ") form.
As a side note, if you're getting ready to issue an invoice and
release, but you haven't yet been paid on the invoice you issued
last month, please click
here to read about how we handle that situation.
This release (also known as a " lien
waiver "), does not have a 'release thru' date like the
first two lien waivers do, as this #3
lien waiver is for the final payment
on the project.
You will enter the total dollar amount, the same amount your final
invoice is for, on the lien waiver and submit that #3 lien waiver
with your final invoice.
Do NOT submit the #3 lien waiver until
you are certain that you are finished
on the project and will not be back to do any other work.
If you do submit the #3 release, and then you do go back and perform
additional work on the project, then you'll have to issue
another preliminary notice on the project to protect your
mechanic's lien rights.
It can get really involved and complicated, and
expensive, to have to re-prelim projects. The easiest way
to avoid that is to NOT issue that #3
lien waiver until you know that you are done on the project
and that the dollar amount you are entering on that #3
lien waiver is indeed the full and final amount owed to you.
Once you have received that FINAL payment and it has cleared your
customer's bank account, you will then submit the #4
release . [continued]
