Individuals can find templates of a lien form on Free-Real-Estate-Forms.com. Five templates are available on the website, including a template for preliminary lien notice, a mechanics lien form, a partial waiver of lien form, a final lien waiver form and a lien release form, notes Free-Real-Estate-Form.com.
A mechanic's lien protects the financial interests of contractors. It prevents the owner of a property from selling it before he pays the contractor who worked on the property, says Rocket Lawyer. Each state has its own mechanic's lien. A contractor needs to fill out the form and record it with the recorder or clerk of the county where the property is located.
