Lien Waiver Templates

We offer four types of lien waivers for contractors to be submitted with your invoice. See below for lien waivers and their definition. Be sure you purchase the correct lien waiver form.

Conditional Waiver of Lien Upon Progress Payment

Definition: Use this form when the claimant is required to sign a lien waiver in exchange for, or in order to, induce a progress payment, and the claimant has not yet been paid. This form is useful when the claimant is not yet paid, but will be paid out of a progress payment that is not the final payment. This conditional waiver and release is only effective after the claimant is actually paid.

Unconditional Waiver of Lien Upon Progress Payment

Definition: Use this form when the claimant is required to sign a lien waiver in exchange for, or in order to, induce a progress payment, and the claimant asserts in the waiver that he or she has received the progress payment.

Conditional Final Waiver of Lien Upon Payment

Definition: Use this form when the claimant is required to sign a lien waiver in exchange for, or in order to, induce a final payment, and the claimant has not yet been paid. This release is only binding if there is evidence of payment to the claimant. Evidence of payment may be demonstrated by:

  • The claimant’s endorsement on a single check or a joint check that has been paid by the bank upon which it was drawn; or
  • Written acknowledgment of payment given by the claimant.

Unconditional Final Waiver of Lien and/or Claim

Definition: Use this form when the claimant is required to sign a waiver and release in exchange for, or in order to, induce a final payment and the claimant asserts in the waiver that he or she has received the final payment.  Claimants should issue this type of release only when their work is done and their final payment has cleared their bank. Owners should demand this release when they have paid a contractor in full.
