That’s a great question. Sections 38-1a-802(4)(b) and (c) of the Utah Code set out the requirements for Utah lien waivers, including statutory forms for those waivers. Those statutory forms call for the “Property Name” of the project property where lien rights are being waived. Unfortunately, though, the statute doesn’t provide any more insight into exactly what would constitute the name of the property. So, what might constitute the “property name” isn’t exactly set in stone.

That being said, using a common nickname for the property, or using something that’s descriptive enough to identify the property should probably do the trick. If it’s a commercial job, it should be relatively easy to come up with a nickname that’s used to identify the property. For residences, including the name of the owner of the property might be helpful. But, if you’re truly uncertain as to what to put in the blank, it might also be helpful to reach out to the customer and/or the property owner to see about what how they might identify the property in shorthand.

I hope that was helpful! For more information on Utah lien waivers, here’s a great resource: Utah Lien Waiver Overview.
