Mechanic’s Lien and Bond Waivers: Reading and Revising Waivers to Protect Security Rights

About the Webinar

Creditors are typically asked to sign waivers in exchange for payments received. The customer and project owner are certainly entitled to a receipt for payments. However, common Mechanic’s Lien and Bond Claim Waiver forms go much further than this. You can easily waive your lien and bond rights for retention and change orders. Some waivers actually extinguish your lien and bond rights for future deliveries. What if you sign a waiver and never receive the payment?

You must learn to be careful with the effective dates of waivers to make sure you are not waiving rights for recent deliveries not included in this payment. Exclude retention and pending change orders. What if your customer files bankruptcy within 90 days of the payment? Was this payment a bankruptcy preference, even though you had lien or bond rights at the time of payment? Learn to make all Mechanic’s Lien and Bond Claim Waivers conditional to protect against all these problems. Protect and preserve your lien and bond secured creditor status.
