Lien Waiver Fundamentals

Lien waivers are among the most common payment documents used in construction — but they are also among the most dangerous.

In Lien Waiver Fundamentals, our text and video lessons will guide you through the process in simple, easy-to-understand steps that ensure you avoid the most common — and costly — mistakes.
