The lien has the force, effect, and priority of a judgment lien and shall continue for 10 years from the date of the judgment so entered by the clerk of the court unless sooner released or otherwise discharged. The lien may, within 10 years from the date of the judgment, or within 10 years from the date of the last extension of the lien, be extended by filing for record in the office of the county recorder of any county an abstract or copy of the judgment. From the time of filing the lien shall be extended to the property in the county for 10 years unless sooner released or otherwise discharged.
