Why file a release of lien on a construction project?

release of lienA release of lien (also known as a mechanics lien release, discharge or final lien waiver) generally means that you've been paid, or the construction lien dispute has otherwise been resolved. Here are some reasons for completing your LienItNow mechanics lien discharge:

  1. As a condition of payment, the construction lien usually must be discharged.
  2. The faster you discharge your lien, the faster you'll receive the payment.
  3. Failing to discharge a lien after receiving payment can result in penalties.
  4. Avoid bounced checks by asking for payment before filing a discharge.
  5. If you are paid, the law may require that you discharge your construction lien.

Depending on your State's requirements and guidelines on mechanics liens, you will find that a waiver of lien may be just as important as securing the construction lien itself. As an owner, when you hire a contractor and then have a payment dispute, you will want to make sure that any lien filed by the contractor is removed upon payment being made. The same is true for a contractor's subcontractor, or subcontractors or suppliers. Aside from not being able to complete the transaction, failure to provide a discharge on a lien may be against the law and will harm your company in the long run. Filing a discharge entails timeliness, as do many things in the construction industry. To meet the need for a fast discharge to receive the payment in the shortest time possible, you will need the right tools to aid you.
