Arizona

Partial Unconditional Lien Waiver

Download

This waiver – the Unconditional Waiver and Release on Progress Payment – should be used when a progress payment on the project has been received. Further payments may be expected, but the specific partial payment discussed in the waiver has been received.

Because this is an “unconditional” waiver, it should only be used when payment has actually been received. If payment has not been received, if the check hasn’t yet cleared the bank, or if there is some other reason why payment might ultimately fail, this waiver should not be furnished. If this is the case, signing a “conditional” waiver is a safer option.

Partial Conditional Lien Waiver

Download

This waiver – the Conditional Waiver and Release on Progress Payment – should be used when a progress payment on the project is expected. There may be future expected payments on the project, but this waiver applies only to a specific, expected progress or partial payment.

Because this is a “conditional” waiver, it is ok if payment has not yet been received. The waiver is “conditional” on the receipt of the payment and will be invalid if payment is not ultimately received. If payment has already been received in full, an “unconditional” waiver may be more appropriate.

Arizona

Because this is a “conditional” waiver, it is ok if payment has not yet been received. The waiver is “conditional” on the receipt of the payment and will be invalid if payment is not ultimately received.

Stop Notice Form

Download

Anyone with the right to file a mechanics lien in Arizona also has the right to deliver a Stop Notice to the property owner and lender (if any). These notices place a lien on the project’s funds, rather than the project’s property itself. Which to file (or whether to file both) is up to the claimant, and depends on the claimant’s goals. The period to file a stop notice is the same as the period to file a mechanics lien. Click the button below to download an Arizona Stop Notice form.

Notice of Intent to Lien Form

Download

Although not required in the state of Arizona, a claimant may deliver a Notice of Intent to Lien to any party to a construction project. This document provides the noticed party with a 10-day period to make payment to the claimant, before a lien is filed. Delivery of this notice does not suspend the lien period.

20 Day Preliminary Notice Form

Download

In Arizona, a 20-Day Preliminary Notice must be delivered to the owner, the prime contractor, the lender, and the party who hired the noticing party within 20 days of first furnishing services, labor or materials. Failure to deliver notice forfeits a party’s right to lien. A late notice is not ineffective, but only preserves the right to lien for services furnished within 20 days of the notice, and thereafter.

Mechanics Lien Form

Download

The Notice of Claim of Lien is Arizona’s mechanic’s lien. It must be filed within the time prescribed by law, and is generally available to any party who has not been paid on a construction project. “An exception” exists for owner-occupied residential structures. For these types of construction, only the party who contracted directly with the property owner can file a lien. In addition, a claimant who has a right to lien may also file a Stop Notice. This liens the funds of the project, rather than the property as a whole. This may be filed in addition to the lien, or instead of the lien, depending on the claimant’s goals.

File a Stop Notice through zlien

In some states, Stop Notices are available to contractors and suppliers as an alternative to (or in addition to) their Mechanic Lien Rights. A Stop Notice is delivered to the prime contractor or property owner, and demands that they withhold enough funds to pay your claim. If the property owner or prime contractor is in possession of funds at the time your Stop Notice is sent, they will be responsible for payment of your claim if they disburse those funds to other parties.
