I work in the facilities Department of a univerity in Pennsylvania. Our Tenant(A deli) is having a floor installed over the existing floor. They have paid the contractor in full for all materials and service installation. In our lease agreement it specifies that the tenant shall deliver copies of a Waiver of Lien to the landlord along with evidence that such Lien Waiver has been duly filed with the Pronothotary prior to commencement of work or delivery of materials. Can someone tell me which is the correct form to use/fill out? I am filling it out fot the General Contractor to release the university from all responsibility of payment for any materials and services. also, Does this form need to be notarized? I am not sure how to file with the Prothonotary.

I’m glad your project went off without a hitch! When a job is complete and payment has been made, a final unconditional lien waiver is probably the most appropriate. Once signed, this waiver waives all lien rights for the given project and certifies that all payments have been made. As far as filing with the prothonotary – doing an online search for your local prothonotary then calling them may help clear up requirements for filing the lien waiver. Typically, filing is a relatively simply process and can be accomplished by either bringing the document in by hand or mailing the document with instructions to file. Regardless of how the lien waiver arrives at the prothonotary’s office, it will be important to include the proper amount for filing fees – and calling the prothonotary should be able to clear that up as well. As far as forms go – zlien provides an online final unconditional lien waiver form for Pennsylvania here: Pennsylvania Final Unconditional Lien Waiver.
