There are various situation in which a waiver or release may be needed. For example, a waiver may be obtained before participating in a dangerous activity to prevent a personal injury claim, or a homeowner may obtain a lien waiver to protect against mechanics' liens being filed against the property. A release may be obtained after settlement and payment of a claim, to prevent a claim that additional funds are due.

What is the difference between a waiver and release.

Waivers are typically obtained prior to commencement of an act, whereas releases are subsequently obtained.
