Washington Law Review


This note will discuss both the PLC's new remedy and the new priority given to mortgages for future advances. Both provisions will make present construction industry practices more equitable: Section 2 has given PLC's a new, productive and efficient remedy, designed to work with and improve the traditional real property lien, and Section 3 has repaired the damage done to lenders' mortgage priorities by a recent Washington case. Both Sections do create new problems of their own, however, which are also discussed.
