§3888. Filing of notice of seizure; effect of subsequent acts and cancellation of notice

A. Upon the sheriff's filing of the notice of seizure required by Article 2293 of the Code of Civil Procedure, no sale, contract, counter letter, privilege, lien, mortgage, judgment, surface lease, oil, gas, or mineral lease, or other instrument or writing relating to or purporting to affect immovable property that has not been filed previously for registry shall effectively create, transfer, or encumber any interest in the immovable property under seizure. Following the registry of the sheriff's deed, any such instrument or writing that may have been filed after the filing of the notice of seizure shall be cancelled by the clerk of court upon the request by affidavit of any interested party. However, if the notice of seizure is cancelled other than as a result of the ensuing sheriff's sale, all such acts shall thereupon be accorded such effect as the law would have allowed if the notice of seizure had never been filed.

B. This Section shall not prevent the effective reinscription or preservation of a mortgage, privilege, or other right that arises under or is evidenced by an instrument which had been duly filed for registry before filing of the notice of seizure or the effective exercise of a right or option that arises under or is evidenced by such an instrument.

Acts 1991, No. 662, §3, eff. July 17, 1991; Acts 1992, No. 533, §1.
