Mechanics' Liens in Pennsylvania: What You Need to Know in 2017

Available: In Stock
Price: $69.00


The 2007 amendments to Pennsylvania’s Mechanics’ Lien Law made dramatic alterations to that law, changing, and in some cases reversing, the balance of power among owners and claimants. But those amendments were only the beginning. If the 2007 amendments were a revolution, the 10 years that have followed brought an almost constant evolution of the law. In addition to four sets of amendments the General Assembly made over that period, faced with a steady stream of mechanics’ lien cases, the courts have contributed significantly to what is a very different looking Mechanics’ Lien Law landscape. Gain a framework you can use if you are new to mechanics’ liens in Pennsylvania, as well as an up-to-the-minute update on recent case law and legislation that will be valuable to even the most experienced practitioners.
