§ 1304. Excessive curtilage
Where an owner objects that a lien has been claimed against more property than should justly be included therein, the court upon petition may, after hearing by deposition or otherwise, limit the boundaries of the property subject to the lien. Failure to raise this objection preliminarily shall not be a waiver of the right to plead the same as a defense thereafter.


1963, Aug. 24, P.L. 1175, No. 497, art. III, § 304.
Adapted from Section 23, Act of 1901, 49 P.S. 133, and continues the former procedure. The last sentence is added to make clear that failure to object preliminarily will not constitute a waiver.
The omission of express reference to the right of lienholders or persons having an interest in the property to object is not intended to affect such right, which is governed by intervention rules 2326 et seq. (Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure.)
