PART III. PROVISIONS GOVERNING THE FILING OF CLAIMS OF COMMON LAW LIENS.

§38-16-301. Filing or recording a claim of nonconsensual commonlaw lien is of no force or effect.

A nonconsensual common law lien is invalid and does not constitute a charge against property or create an interest in property. The filing or recording of a document that purports to evidence a nonconsensual common law lien is a nullity and is of no force or effect.
