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.
