Where in the code or NM Statutes does it say this: “New Mexico does not have statutory lien waiver forms; therefore, you can use any lien waiver form”

I’m trying to locate information on my question above.

Good question! I’m assuming that language was pulled from zlien‘s New Mexico Lien Waiver FAQ. Anyway, that language does not appear in New Mexico statute. Rather, it refers to the absence of specific lien waiver requirements under New Mexico statute. While a few states regulate lien waivers and require specific forms (such as Texas or California), the majority of states (including New Mexico) do not actually require that specific lien waiver forms be used. zlien discusses the idea in-depth here: Lien Waivers: The 12 States With Statutory Forms.
