We are a Subcontractor. A GC we are working for, hasn't been paying us. In our contract it says that we may not lien them or anyone. Is this legal in Pennsylvania? This is a non-residential project.
The right for a contractor or supplier to file a lien on a construction project is created by statute in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Generally speaking, parties cannot abridge or otherwise restrict another party's statutory rights by way of a contract. I would still like to see the actual contract language before giving you a more definite answer. Could you please send me a copy of the clause to cschmitt(at)vaughanbaio.com?
