Under the Pennsylvania Mechanic's Lien Law (MLL), only a "contractor" or "subcontractor" is permitted to file a mechanic's lien against an owner of property for payment of debts due by the owner to the contractor or by the contractor to any of its subcontractors for labor or materials furnished during a construction project. Generally, the term "subcontractor" is defined as a party in privity of contract, express or implied, with either a contractor or a first-tier subcontractor who furnishes labor, skill or superintendence for, among other things, the erection, construction, alteration or repair of an improvement of real property.
