The lien waiver exchange process is crucial to ensuring payment on a construction project. A mechanics lien is powerful leverage to ensure payment. Waiving the right to file a lien shouldn’t be taken lightly, which is why it’s so important to execute the waiver properly.

The state of Nevada is just one of only 12 states that provide statutory lien waivers. Meaning that in order to be valid and enforceable, the waiver must contain the exact language provided in the statute. Any attempt to add terms or modify the form in any way should be avoided. Even something as simple as notarizing the waiver could result in the lien being declared unenforceable.

Nevada provides 4 different statutory lien waiver forms; this post will focus on how to properly fill out the Nevada conditional lien waiver for final payments.

If there are any payments that may still be coming under the same contract, then a progress waiver is likely the better option. These waivers are also, conditional. The waiver of lien rights will not be effective until payment is transferred.

Conditional waivers are the best type of lien waivers. They better protect the claimant by preserving lien rights until payment is actually received.
