Lien noterization

8 months ago

In your Three Steps to Get Paid on Construction Projects, it says that only 3 states say the Lien Release must be notarized, Washington State was not listed as one. Yet, above, it says… The statement must be notarized.

Washington mechanics lien claims must be notarized, as mentioned in this article: How To File A Washington Mechanics Lien | Step-By-Step Guide to Get You Paid. However, mechanics lien waivers in Washington do not need to be notarized in order to be valid and effective.

I hope that clears things up! I wasn’t able to find the particular article you were referring to – Levelset has this resource titled “Three Steps to Get Paid on Every Construction Project“, but it doesn’t discuss notarization.

For more information on Washington mechanics liens and lien waivers, these resources should be valuable:
