On May 9, 2012, the Pennsylvania Superior Court reached a decision in Commerce Bank/Harrisburg, N.A. v. Stephen F. Kessler & Lisa K. Kessler that will have a significant impact on the priority of a lender’s open-end mortgage liens. Specifically, the Court in Kessler held that, under the Pennsylvania Mechanics’ Lien Law of 1963, as amended, an open-end mortgage will have priority over a prior-in-time mechanics’ lien only where all of the proceeds of the mortgage are used to pay all or part of the costs of completing erection, construction, alteration, or repair of the mortgaged premises. Where a portion of the proceeds of the open-end mortgage is used to pay for items such as tax claims, closing costs, the satisfaction of an existing mortgage, or payment of other judgments and liens on the property, the super-priority of the open-end mortgage is destroyed.
