Title 60. Property
§60-511. Liens against unit estates - Discharge.

Universal Citation: 60 OK Stat § 60-511 (2019)

(a) While the property remains subject to this act, no lien shall arise or be effective against the property as a whole, but only against each unit ownership estate and such lien shall attach in the same manner and under the same conditions in every respect as liens or encumbrances may arise or be created upon or against any other separate parcel of real property subject to individual ownership; provided, however, that no labor performed or materials furnished with the consent or at the request of a unit owner or his agent, his contractor, or subcontractor, shall constitute the basis for a mechanic's or materialmen's lien against the unit ownership estate or any other property of any other unit owner who has not expressly consented to or requested the same, except that for the purposes of this act such express consent shall be presumed to have been given by the unit owner in case of emergency repairs thereto. Labor performed or materials furnished for the common elements, if duly authorized by the council of unit owners or its duly authorized agent in accordance with this act, the declaration or bylaws shall be deemed to be performed or furnished with the express consent of each unit owner and shall constitute the basis for a mechanic's or materialmen's lien as now provided by law against each of the unit ownership estates in the property but shall be subject to the provisions of subparagraph (b) hereunder.

(b) When a lien against two or more unit owners is asserted, each unit owner may discharge his unit ownership estate from such lien by payment to the lienor of the fractional or proportional amount which is attributable to his unit ownership estate. Such individual obligation shall be computed by reference to the percentage of interest set forth in the declaration. Upon such payment or satisfaction of the lien claim, the unit ownership estate shall be free and clear of the lien claim but such release of the unit owner shall not prevent the lienor from proceeding to establish and enforce his rights against any other unit owner who has not so discharged his obligation to the lienor.
