What is a Partial Lien Waiver?
A Partial Lien Waiver, in the construction industry, refers to a legal document drafted to provide assurance to a payer that a contractor, subcontractor or materials supplier has received specified payments and waives its right to place a lien on the construction project to the extent of received payments. This document, typically used to maintain a clear title, only relates to the amount that has been paid up to a certain point. Subsequent payments would need additional waivers. It is advised to closely monitor Partial Lien Waivers as they help in avoiding disputes about the amount due, ensuring smoother construction operation.
