Background

When a subcontractor is performing work for a general contractor, the person (or people) who typically have lien waiver signature authority are:

  • An owner or executive of the subcontracting company. 
  • A manager or employee of the subcontracting company who is granted express permission from an owner or executive. 
  • A legal representative who has been granted express permission to sign a lien waiver on the owner's or executive's behalf. 

Answer

In Procore Pay, the default setting for lien waiver signature authority on a subcontractor invoice is the invoice contact on a commitment. Because an invoice contact may not have the authority to sign a lien waiver for the subcontracting company, the contact can grant signature authority to another person. Procore Pay collects one (1) signature. Procore Pay does not support joint signatures on lien waivers. See Share Lien Waiver Signature Authority. If you are unsure who to share authority with, always contact the subcontracting company for guidance.
