(770 ILCS 70/4) (from Ch. 82, par. 504)
    Sec. 4. Subcontractor's Lien. Any person who shall, under contract, perform any labor or furnish any material or services as a subcontractor under an original contractor or for or to an original contractor or a subcontractor under an original contractor, shall be entitled to a lien upon all the property upon which the lien of an original contractor may attach to the same extent as an original contractor, and the lien provided for in this Section shall further extend and attach to all materials and fixtures owned by such original contractor or subcontractor to or for whom the labor is performed or material or services furnished and used or employed, or furnished to be used or employed in the drilling, completing or operating of such oil or gas wells, or in the construction of such pipeline. Upon the filing of a subcontractor's lien, the owner may withhold payment to the original contractor in the amount claimed by the lien until the debt on which the lien is based is settled or determined to be not owed. The owner is not liable to the subcontractor for more than the amount that the owner owes the original contractor when notice of the lien is received by the owner.
