Construction worker laying concrete | Nevada Unconditional Progress Lien Waivers

A critical part of the construction payment process is the exchange of lien waivers. Their importance cannot be overstressed. Waiving lien rights means giving up the only leverage a lower-tier party has against a non-paying owner or GC. Prudent contractors should pay close attention when signing a lien waiver.

Nevada regulates the form of lien waivers pretty heavily. In fact, it is one of the 12 states that actually provide statutory lien waiver forms. In order to be a valid waiver, they must contain all the language provided by the statute. If there are any alterations or additional language on the forms, this could result in the waiver being invalid and unenforceable.

The state of Nevada requires the use of one of four different types of lien waivers; this article will show how to properly execute a Nevada conditional final lien waiver form.

Guide to Nevada unconditional lien waivers for progress payments

This type of waiver should be used when the claimant is exchanging the waiver for payment of a progress billing. If there are any future payments expected on a job, progress or (partial) lien waiver is the way to go. These waivers are also unconditional; which means that they are valid and enforceable the second they are signed.

Unconditional waivers should only be used when the claimant has actually received payment. A check in hand doesn’t count, we mean funds actually deposited into an account.
