A Lien Waiver is a document that releases a consumer (homeowner) from any further obligation for payment of a debt once it has been paid in full. Lien Waivers typically are used by homeowners who hire a contractor to provide work and materials to prevent any subcontractors or suppliers of materials from filing a lien against the homeowner for nonpayment.
