570.254 Statement of lien; contents, verification; recording with register of deeds, fee.

Sec. 4.

Every person, or his agent or attorney, whether contractor, sub-contractor, material man or laborer, who wishes to avail himself of the provisions of this statute, shall make and record in the office of the register of deeds, in the county or counties in which said leasehold, oil or gas well, pipe line, oil or gas derrick, oil tanks, materials, machinery or other property to be charged with the lien is situated, a just and true statement or account of the demand due him, over and above all legal setoffs, setting forth the time when such materials were furnished or labor performed, and for whom, and containing a sufficiently correct description of the premises, leasehold or property to be charged with the lien to identify the same, and the name of the owner, part owner or lessee thereof, if known. Such verified statement shall be recorded at any time after the contract is made and within 6 months from the date on which the last of the materials shall have been furnished or the last of the labor shall have been performed by the person claiming the lien and may be amended at any time before the final judgment or decree. Such verified statement of lien shall be recorded and indexed by the register of deeds in the same manner as provided by law for the recording of real estate mortgages, and such recording shall have the same effect as to notice as against subsequent purchasers or encumbrancers as the recording of a mortgage. The register of deeds shall receive as his fees for the recording and indexing of such liens and all subsequent papers affecting such liens, the same fees as are provided by law for recording a real estate mortgage.
