Can a mechanic's lien be waived as a matter of contract]

California

Can a contractor legally include a lien waiver clause in their contract which waives the right to file a lien even in the event of non payment

No. California Civil Code section 8122 provides that a contractor may not, by contract or otherwise, waive, affect, or impair any other claimant's rights to record a mechanics lien.
