What happens if I use the wrong lien waiver form in Idaho?

You can’t use a “wrong” lien waiver form in Idaho because there are not statutory forms required by the state. An Idaho lien waiver form should be reviewed very carefully before signing — there is no regulation limiting the language or clauses included in Idaho lien waiver forms.
