New Mexico

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.

If this is the case, signing a “conditional” waiver is a safer option.

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.
