As a Pennsylvania property owner, should I file a Notice of Commencement?

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

In Pennsylvania, an owner may file an OPTIONAL Notice of Commencement with the Directory of General Services (DGS) registry. The purpose of filing the Notice of Commencement is to provide all the relevant information necessary for a subcontractor or supplier to file a Notice of Furnishing. 501.3.

Prior to the commencement of labor or the furnishing of materials for a searchable project that may give rise to a mechanics' lien under the mechanic's lien code, the searchable project owner or agent of the searchable project owner may file a Notice of Commencement with the directory. 501.3(a)(1). The contractor can also act as the owner's agent and file the Notice of Commencement if the contract provides. 501.3(a)(2).

Filing a Notice of Commencement triggers the requirement for a subcontractor or supplier on the job to serve you with a Notice of Furnishing within 45 days. 501.3(b)(1).

Section 501.3(a)(3) states that the Notice of Commencement must include the following information:
1) Name, street address, and e-mail address of the general contractor.
2) Name and location of the project.
3) County in which the project is located.
4) Legal description of the property, including all its tax-parcel identifying numbers.
5) Name, address, and e-mail address of the owner of the property and (if different) of the project.
6) If applicable, the name, address, and e-mail address of a surety for performance and payment bonds.

Upon receipt of a Notice of Commencement, the Directory will assign a unique identifying notice to it. 501.1(e)(1). Additionally, the Notice must be posted at the worksite and the owner must take reasonable steps during construction to ensure the notice remains posted and available for view. 501.3(a)(4). The project owner and contractor must also make reasonable efforts to ensure that a copy of the Notice of Commencement is included in all contract documents that are provided to subcontractors who awarded work on the project. 501.3(a)(5).

If you have any questions about filing a Notice of Commencement or any other issue with Pennsylvania mechanic's liens, contact an attorney familiar with construction or lien law.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

I downloaded the forms, which was very easy, and filled them out with the help of the very helpful instructions! I was able to go down to my court house and file the forms within 24 hours of downloading! I am at peace knowing my son's will avoid a lot of headaches when I pass because my property deed will transfer to them without probate court TOD !!!!

Glad to have all of the helpful extra information, even though they don't answer all questions for all situations. So, I accessed public records and asked questions at the auditor's office. Also, on my Mac computer, filling out the actual deed form is a challenge because the screen jumps to the last page everytime I try to type a few letters or hit the return key, so I'm rollling back up to the first 2 pages after most keystrokes. A bit annoying.

Overall, happy to have these form options are available! There is really no need to wait and pay for an attorney when all the information needed is available via public records. Fill in the blanks!

Thanks so much for the feedback Teri. There are known issues between Adobe and Mac, we try to work around them as much as possible. Have a wonderful day!

Very easy to use. However, the "sample" filled in red ink did not print for me to refer to. Is that the correct desire, not to print?

You think you're purchasing 1 form for $25 but you are getting several which explains the $25.
My printer ran out of black ink and I couldn't change the color of the text so that it would print. I couldn't copy and paste it to Word and work on it there. I'm going to purchase ink today so that it will at least print right.

I will have to retype the text in Word; not good.
