To unlock a signed unconditional lien waiver on a project invoice as an invoice contact. 


Procore Pay protects signees by automatically locking signed unconditional lien waivers. With Procore Pay, your signed lien waiver is only unlocked and available to the general contractor after you receive the invoice payment in full. However, you can unlock a lien waiver at any time. Because signing an unconditional lien waiver releases your lien rights, it is recommended that you only unlock the lien waiver after getting paid. If you decide to unlock a signed unconditional lien waiver before you receive payment, you do so at your own risk.
