Pennsylvania Preliminary Notice Requirements for Subcontractors

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

Preliminary notice by subcontractors is a required step to obtaining any lien. Notice also provides the owner with information regarding who is working on the property and to what extent they may claim a lien.

As with most other states, the mechanic's lien law in Pennsylvania requires subcontractors to serve preliminary notice on the property owner or general contractor unless the parties are under a direct contract. According to Section 501, no claim by a subcontractor, whether for erection or construction or for alterations or repairs, shall be valid unless, at least thirty (30) days before the filing, he shall have given to the owner a formal written notice of his intention to file a claim. 49 P.S. 501(c). The formal notice must state: (1) the name of the party claimant; (2) the name of the person with whom he contracted; (3) the amount claimed to be due; (4) the general nature and character of the labor or materials furnished; (5) the date of completion of the work for which his claim is made; (6) a brief description sufficient to identify the property claimed to be subject to the lien. Id.

The notice does not have to be verified or notarized, but the claimant or an authorized representative must sign it. There is no requirement to record the Notice either. It's advisable, however, to keep a copy, and deliver the original notice via USPS certified mail with delivery confirmation, to verify with the court or anyone else that notice was provided.

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'm not too bright and I made a mess of things when I tried to create my own deed. It was lucky that I found the forms here after so many of my personal failures. It's good that the pros know what they are doing.

Their customer service is impressive to say the least. I sent them an email and I received a response that the issue had been resolved in under an hour. They even apologized for the inconvenience. I haven't used the forms I purchased yet but if they are anything like their Customer service, I know I will be extremely satisfied with my purchase. I will definitely return here for ALL my needs they can provide for in the future.

I don't have any experience with real estate legal forms and these were fairly easy to understand. The guide helped a bunch and the information provided on the site filled in any gaps. Overall I would definitely use again.

The deeds.com website is incredibly easy to navigate and the nearly instantaneous chat function allowed me to quickly correct an entry error I made uploading a document. The day after enrolling and uploading the document I had a copy of the document properly filed. Very efficient; very effective.

I was in despair as I needed to file two (2) very important documents with the County. Due to Covid the office was closed and my only recourse was to E-Fie with a service provider. I was fortunate enough to hear about Deeds.com. They were specific, courteous, patient and most of all productive. My documents will take awhile for the final filing but that is because the County happens to have a slow turn around time. Otherwise, I am now relieved that this part is over. Thank you Deeds.com. You are awesome.
