(a) and (b) by changing “an attested copy of one application” to “notice of the application” and added Subsec. (c) re contents of notice of application to be recorded or lodged pursuant to section; P.A. 96-180 made technical changes in Subsecs. (a) and (b), effective June 3, 1996; P.A. 07-116 inserted “certified by the court” re application in Subsecs. (a) and (b), substituted “allegedly” for “alleged” in Subsecs.
