I need to sign a Lien Waiver but I want to know if a notary can sign as a witness on the lien waiver?

If the lien waiver is being notarized by that notary, then the notary shouldn't also serve as the witness on the document. But, if the lien waiver is not being notarized, then yes - a notary could absolutely serve as the witness.
Keep in mind that Virginia lien waivers don't actually have to be notarized. Only Texas, Mississippi, and Wyoming require that waivers be notarized. Levelset discusses that here: Do Lien Waivers Need to be Notarized?
