Wisconsin

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.

Wisconsin

Final Conditional Lien Waiver

Download

This waiver – the Conditional Waiver and Release on Final Payment – should be used when the final payment for a project is expected but has yet to be received. Signing this waiver signifies that no further payments are expected following the payment described in the waiver.

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.

Wisconsin

Final Unconditional Lien Waiver

Download

This waiver – the Unconditional Waiver and Release on Final Payment – should be used when the final payment on the project has been made and received by the party that furnished labor or materials. Signing this waiver indicates that payment has been received and no further payments are expected.

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.
