Mechanic's Lien assignments can be accomplished by filing an assignment of lien document with the county recorder or prothonotary office where the subject property is located and where the lien was originally recorded.

One of the fundamental principles of contract law is the right to assign contract rights to a third party. For example, Bill contracts with Ted to build a house for Ted. Bill then assigns the right to payment for the house to Fred (maybe he owes Fred some money on a debt). This is called an "assignment." With the basic legal terminology clarified, let's move on to how lien assignments work in Pennsylvania.

Typically, under the rule on assignments, all rights of either seller or buyer can be assigned except where the assignment would materially change the duty of the other party, or increase materially the burden or risk imposed on the other party by the contract, or impair materially the other party's chance of obtaining return performance. In general, as long as there is no increased burden or risk, or the duties required by the party subject to the lien somehow change, an assignment is permissible.

A valid assignment identifies the parties, the subject property, relevant dates, fees, and payments, and any other details needed for the specific situation. In addition, the document must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents.

Mechanic's Liens are governed by Title 49 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

As a real estate professional, I've had the opportunity to use various legal form providers over the years, but none have matched the quality and user-friendliness of Deeds.com's real estate legal forms.
The forms themselves are comprehensive, up-to-date, and in line with current real estate laws and regulations, which is paramount in our field. The clarity and thoroughness of the documentation ensured that I could complete with confidence, knowing that every detail was covered.
I wholeheartedly recommend their services and look forward to continuing our partnership.

Whomever "KCH" is, that person was of great help. It took me several tries due my inexperience with ADOBE SCAN, but that certainly is no fault of yours!!

KVH was very patient with me, and in fact resolved the things I was doing wrong for me, without my even requesting the assistance.

This was so easy and seemless. I wish I had found deeds.com for eRecording sooner! I submitted my documents from the comfort of my office, they were great about communicating in a timely manner with updates. The next day I had copies of my recorded documents! I would highly recommend deeds.com!

This is another great deal that has come out of the quarantine for covid. Saved me hours and days of time. and provides a way to file deeds that really isn't done effectively anyway else. It was also very inexpensive that you would not expect. I didn't even have to leave home.
