 G706A™–1994, Contractor’s Affidavit of Release of Liens

Synopsis. 

AIA Document G706A–1994 supports AIA Document G706–1994 in the event that the owner requires a sworn statement of the contractor stating that all releases or waivers of liens have been received. In such event, it is normal for the contractor to submit AIA Documents G706–1994 and G706A–1994 along with attached releases or waivers of liens for the contractor, all subcontractors, and others who may have lien rights against the owner’s property. The contractor is required to list any exceptions to the sworn statement provided in G706A–1994, and may be required to furnish to the owner a lien bond or indemnity bond to protect the owner with respect to such exceptions. For all document details and a record of changes, see the summary  »

 

Using G706A–1994.

General. The Owner-Contractor Agreement is the usual source of required information such as the contract date and the names and addresses of the Owner, Project, and Contractor.

Architect’s Project No. This information is typically supplied by the Architect and entered on the form by the Contractor.

Contract For. This refers to the scope of the contract, such as “General Construction” or “Mechanical Work.”

Affidavit. Indicate the state and county where the Affidavit is made. This is not necessarily the same location as the Project, but should be the location where the notary is authorized to administer sworn oaths. If there are any EXCEPTIONS to the statement, these should be listed in the space provided; otherwise enter as “None.” It may be a stipulation of the Contract Documents that the Owner has the right to require the Contractor to furnish a bond to cover each exception listed on the Affidavit.

Supporting Documents. Supporting documents to be attached to the G706A may include sworn construction statements and/or lien waiver and release forms, if required by the Owner. For more information on sworn construction statements and/or lien waiver and release forms, please see this page on Important Considerations for Sworn Construction Statements and Lien Waivers.

 

Executing the Document.

The Notary Public should administer a sworn oath to the Contractor in reference to the written statements appearing on G706A, and should duly sign and seal this document containing the Contractor’s signature. G706A should be signed by the Contractor or the Contractor’s authorized representative.
