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 saved a ton of money doing it on my own versus through legal counsel. When I took it to the auditor/recorder today, there was absolutely no problems.

The actual transfer of deed form seems to be the only one not fillable in Adobe. Seems odd.

This site was easy to use for access to State forms for filing in Montmorency County clerks office. Not only did I find claim form but a sample claim was available for assisting on how to complete your form correctly. Found this so very useful for us (public resident) to fill in the form as a .PDF file that prints out typed form - rather than handwritten entries. There is a fee but your access is always available on internet to this site in the future. Saved me time using this site and My filed form looks professional. You have access to several other forms if needed.

The pdf form is good; however, the input boxes merge into the line above so the text is hard to read when complete. I added a return before entering my data and this solved the problem.

Thank you for your feedback Cathleen. We will have staff take a look at the document for issues with the text fields. Have a great day!

Pleased with efficiency and expediency of website. Added value is the respective county requirements for Florida. I needed a quitclaim deed between family members. Highly recommended. We hope to record signed and executed document next week in Florida. Thank you.

They must have busy when I applied. The screen said it should be done in under10 mins unless heavier traffic. I was a little nervous because of a time deadline. It was completed in 45 mins and for under $30 it was worth every penny to have my deed details at my fingertips. So I give it a 5 on ease of use and quick handling. You can get it done less expensively, but great in a time crunch.
