33-1022. Garages; aircraft

A. Proprietors of garages and repair and service stations shall have a lien upon motor vehicles of every kind and aircraft, and the parts and accessories placed thereon, for labor, materials, supplies and storage for the amount of the charges, when the amount of the charges is agreed to by the proprietor and the owner.

B. The lien shall not impair any other lien or conditional sale of record at the time the labor, materials, supplies and storage were commenced to be furnished, unless furnished with the knowledge and consent of the record lienor or vendor.

C. If a proprietor has a lien on an aircraft pursuant to subsection A of this section, the proprietor who provides labor, materials, supplies and storage for aircraft may relinquish possession of the aircraft and retain the lien by recording the lien with the county recorder of the county in which the labor, materials, supplies or storage were provided. The lien shall be filed with the county recorder within thirty days after possession is relinquished. In addition, the proprietor may record the lien with the federal aviation administration aircraft registry. A lien filed with the federal aviation administration aircraft registry shall comply with all requirements of federal law and shall accurately describe the aircraft, list the amount of the claim, list the date on which the labor, materials, supplies or storage were last furnished, be signed by the claimant showing the title of the signer, if appropriate, and be accompanied by the recording fee.

D. A lien which is filed with a county recorder pursuant to subsection C of this section does not bind a purchaser of the aircraft without actual notice of the lien unless the lien has also been recorded with the federal aviation administration aircraft registry. A lien authorized under subsection C of this section may be foreclosed only by an action in court.

E. When an aircraft lien which has been recorded under this section has been satisfied, the lienholder within thirty days after satisfaction shall issue a release of the lien to the person against whom the lien was claimed and shall record the release of that lien in the county in which the lien was recorded and with the federal aviation administration aircraft registry, if the lien was recorded there. Failure to record a release upon satisfaction of the lien shall subject the lienholder to the penalties prescribed in section 33-712.
