THIS IS NOT A LIEN.
Is the amount to waiver?
Liens come from those doing work on the job that you have no direct control over. This is especially true where the removal work is part of an overall plan to improve the property.
Worried about doing this on your own? If we are not paid by your contractor, we can file a claim against your property for the price of our services.
But, if a third party is the high bidder, the lender gets paid first. No lien shall continue for a longer period than one year after the claim of lien has been recorded, unless a foreclosure action to enforce the lien is commenced within that time.
So it is essential that the contractor ensures the date on the lien waiver matches the date of work to be paid.
The entire fee.
