As you know, we write about mechanics lien claims a lot, and we know a lot about lien claims. If you're looking for information on liens you can get inundated by data and commentary. But what if you just want a very high level overview of these claims, but enough detail to be fully informed?
This is the article for you. It's everything you ever wanted to know...not everything you could know :).
So, I spent a lot -- and I mean, a lot -- of time putting together a comprehensive ultimate guide on the lien waiver topic. This takes the reader from the very start of the topic (i.e. What is a lien waiver), all the way through the process of crafting policies to handle waivers, navigation of some little nuances related to waivers, and what tools are available to solve the lien waiver problem.
Give it a read, and leave me some thoughts on what you think of the article.
This battle has been raging on between developers, contractors, and suppliers for over 200 years. Even Thomas Jefferson weighed in on the topic by introducing the first mechanics lien legislation in 1791.
But, what's important to you is how to keep the risk off your company's hands. This presentation explains, and may change your company's fortunes for years to come.
