Lien Waivers: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Recorded On: 11/07/2023
About the Webinar
At their core, lien waivers are testament documents used by title companies, banks, property owners and general contractors to assure that funds have flowed down through the ladder of supply. In some instances, it becomes more “signer beware,” and what should be an easy-to-interpret, easy to agree to, one-page document has morphed into a small font, multi-page document that is full of legalese. Our panel of experts will share tools and ideas to help ease the burden of managing waivers.
