Title 29 - Partnership
§ 29-1005 Execution, filing and recording of statements
29-1005. Execution, filing and recording of statements
A. A statement may be filed in the office of the secretary of state. A certified copy of a statement that is filed in an office in another state may be filed in the office of the secretary of state. Either filing has the effect provided in this chapter with respect to partnership property located in or transactions that occur in this state.
B. A certified copy of a statement that has been filed in the office of the secretary of state and recorded in the office for recording transfers of real property has the effect provided for recorded statements in this chapter. A recorded statement that is not a certified copy of a statement filed in the office of the secretary of state does not have the effect provided for recorded statements in this chapter.
C. Other than a statement of qualification under section 29-1101, a statement filed by a partnership shall be executed by at least two partners. Other statements shall be executed by a partner or any other person authorized by this chapter. Whether or not a statement contains an acknowledgment, verification or proof, the signature of each person signing a statement constitutes the affirmation or acknowledgment of that person, under penalty of perjury, that the statement is that person's act and deed or the act and deed of the partnership and that the facts stated in the statement are true.
D. A person authorized by this chapter to file a statement may amend or cancel the statement by filing an amendment or cancellation that names the partnership, identifies the statement and states the substance of the amendment or cancellation.
E. A person who files a statement pursuant to this section shall promptly send a copy of the statement to every nonfiling partner and to any other person named as a partner in the statement. Failure to send a copy of a statement to a partner or any other person does not limit the effectiveness of the statement as to a person who is not a partner.
F. The secretary of state may collect a fee for filing or providing a certified copy of a statement. The officer responsible for recording transfers of real property may collect a fee for recording a statement.
