To whom it may concern, I filed a lien against a contractor for the non payment of one weeks worth of work. I received a call from the material provider last week. They are who hired the installer who contracted me for part of the install. Then later that day the contractor who hired me was emailing me asking for COI’s stating that is the reason why I had not been paid. So within 24hrs I sent over my COI’s. Now he has sent me a lien release form. It states that if I sign the waiver I will be paid. I have already file the lien, will signing this release negate my lien? Or do I not sign until the payment is made. Thank you, Daniel Krek...Read More

I'm guessing all lien waivers need to be notarized? Any that I have ever seen needed to be anyway. I just want to verify that as a registered agent for a business in the state of New Hampshire, I also handle all accounts receivable, invoicing, and all other payment forms or issues. I can sign a construction lien waiver on behalf of the company? ...Read More

We are a replacement contractor in the state of GA. Our average job size is about $20K and we have about 2-3 subs that work on each project. We don't have any specific contract language that promises lien waivers, but have always provided them if a customer asks for it. We have only been asked maybe 2-3 times in the last 10 years to provide this. And when we have provided this in the past it was a single waiver from us that is conditional on final payment in full. We have customer that asked us for one and we provided them with what we usually do and they are saying that the lien laws changed in 2021 and that by law we cannot provide a single waiver and will need to provide a waiver from all subs and suppliers. I do see that law changes and we are updating our lien waiver to accommodate, but I do not see where it is required to provide waivers from all subs and suppliers. We pay our subs weekly on their completed work whether we have final payment or not. And we don't utilize the net 60 from our suppliers and pay them in full every month. So, what is our obligation here? do he have to provide these waivers from all subs and suppliers? or can we provide 1 from us the general contractor that will be sufficient? Also, if we do need to provide lien waivers for all subs and suppliers, what do we fill into the sub/supplier lien waiver where it says, "UPON THE RECEIPT OF THE SUM OF $__________"? do we fill in the project total we are collecting from the customer? or the total paid to the sub/supplier? Thanks in advance....Read More

We have filed a lien for a project in Fort Worth, TX. The GC has advised the following: Once the Waiver has been executed, please have the Tarrant County Clerk attach it to the Lien and provide me with a copy of documentation of the attachment (normally notarized/stamped receipt). As soon as I have the documentation, I can release payment. I haven't heard of that before. Is that something that can be done and if so, how do I do this through Levelset?...Read More

I am a General Contractor trying to collect the appropriate liens from a Subcontractor prior to sending payment. The subcontractors are submitting a Conditional Lien Wavier. We typically have subcontractors submit their Sub-tier Subcontractors / Suppliers Unconditional Lien Waivers prior to us sending them the check. Is that enforceable in the State of Texas? Can we require our subcontractors to pay, and gather all their Unconditional Waivers prior to receiving a check from the GC? The only other option I can see is having the Sub-Tier Subcontractors/ Suppliers submit conditional waivers? ...Read More

We are in a bit of a tricky situation with our first filed lien. Our client is now asking us to sign lien waivers and split 3rd party payment agreements that specifically are stating that no liens have been placed to our knowledge, but there have been and they know this. The only alternative suggestion they stated is for us to remove the lien, have it signed by a county clerk in order for us to get paid. They are stating that they won't pay until its removed or the paperwork is signed and that IF something happens we should just refile a new lien. ...Read More

A Client has an outstanding invoice. They paid in full several invoices prior to the outstanding one, and have paid in full an invoice after the outstanding one. The holdup with the outstanding invoice is that some work was an emergency Change Order which we were told we would be paid for. Client is now saying the CO work was for Phase 3&4 work which the bank has not funded, but we accomplished under the Phase 1&2 contract. Client reluctantly paid a % of the outstanding invoice so we would keep working. Question: Client wants a conditional waiver for the percent of the outstanding invoice they paid. If I give them a conditional waiver for that % does that clear them of any responsibility for the remaining invoice amount?????? ...Read More
