I have a client requesting lien waivers for invoices pending payment on work performed in WI.
The opening reads...
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, we hereby waive all rights and claims for lien on
land and on buildings about to be erected, being erected, erected, altered or repaired and to
Does "FOR VALUE RECEIVED" imply that this is conditional or would it be best practice to create and send a conditional waiver specifying invoice #'s and amounts?
Nice article, thank you.
I am looking for cost per square meter of semiconductor Fab space - ie the cleanroom where the litho/etch etc. processing equipment sit ($50k? to build? How much per year in tax/energy/maint. etc.? after building).
Then, there are near fab lab spaces where they have 'near line' metrology like TEM and FIB - what does that lab space cost per sq meter to build and operate (per year)?...Read More

As you have instructed us as to the importance of proper notification for construction delay, would you consider incorporating such a “Notice of Delay” into your product line? It seems like it would work very similarly of your other timed notices. If you did it would be very appreciated! ...Read More

In short, our project was delayed substantially by the General Contractor’s poor management. Consequently, our portion of work (Drywall & finish) was severely delayed and we were forced to by verbal directives to accelerate, and incurred substantial OT costs. We provided a notice by email Aug 7th of our intention to charge for our OT and delay costs, however the General Contractor did not respond. By project completion we had accrued $36,295 in costs. We have submitted a Change Order request, but General has rejected it, reasoning we had not submitted on their weekly forms reports and had each week approved. By Iowa statue our deadlines are fast-approaching and we intend to file on retainage and amounts approved however; My question is this, notwithstanding the arguable contract language which our attorney has determined may or may not apply in the case of the delay claim, and we intend to argue, could this in any way be construed as a frivolous lien if we included this unapproved amount $36,295 and filed?...Read More
in state of wisconsin if a contractor is filing a mechanics lien on a property do they need to show proof of the agreement between property owner and contractor for the job to be completed?
Contractor wants full payment for a job he did not complete. Don't have an issue paying for the part that he did but won't pay for what he didn't. Husband wasn't thinking and didn't get a contract signed. but we have video and photo documentation on what wasn't completed. Contractor is threatening a lien on the property. We have also told him we wouldn't pay him until Tomorrow 5/3/2021 as that is when our Hard Money Lender issued the draw for. Contractor is wanting money for supplies and labor, but he didn't purchase materials as someone else purchased the materials and we are paying him directly for the material cost. What are our legal actions. Like I said we don't mind paying him for the labor, but he didn't actually do the labor it was a roofing team that came and did the half that they did. Contractor Texted husband on April 29,2021 stating that the roof job was complete. Husband and I went out to property to find that one of the side roofs and the back roof of property was not completed. He still expects the 12,000 dollars for all the work that they did. he is also expecting work for the siding that he was suppose to do on the property, that wasn't completed at all. ...Read More
