If the work is done on a date prior to the invoice date and they are in different months… does the ROL seeker have the option of including it on the next pay period. Example: ROL states through 11/20/19. Work was performed on the job between 11/20-11/21/19. The invoice date is 12/01/19

Ultimately, there’s no strict timetable for sending lien waivers like there is for sending a Notice to Owner or filing a mechanics lien. Rather, they should be submitted as the parties see fit – typically in accordance with the schedule the customer has for requesting lien waivers.

With that in mind, it’s important to understand how the different aspects of a lien waiver work and to submit lien waivers accordingly. And, to be sure, the through date (the date the waiver is signed) may be the most important feature of a progress lien waiver. That date creates a cutoff, and everything prior to the through date is waived.

And, to be sure: If work is done after a progress lien waiver is submitted, then the right to payment for that work generally won’t be waived. So, if work continues, additional waivers may be required.
