Notice of Intent to Lien Form

Download

Even though sending a Notice of Intent to Lien is an optional step in the state of Tennessee, we strongly recommend that potential lien claimants send this document before filing a mechanics lien. A Notice of Intent to Lien serves as one final warning that a lien is forthcoming if the payment issue is not resolved. No one wants to be forced to file a mechanics lien, and this document gives all of the parties involved one final chance to take care of the payment issues on a project.

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.

Final Conditional Lien Waiver

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.

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.
