Title 27 - Property and Conveyances
Chapter 45 - ABANDONED AND LOANED CULTURAL PROPERTY
Section 27-45-90 - Right of lender to claim loaned property subsequent to expiration of notice period.
(A) Effective July 1, 1987, no action may be brought against a nonprofit organization to recover property on loan when more than one hundred twenty days have passed from the date that the organization gives final public notice of intent to terminate the loan pursuant to Section 27-45-30 or 27-45-40, as appropriate, except pursuant to subsection (C).
(B) A lender is considered to have donated loaned property to a nonprofit organization if the lender fails to contact the organization and establish his claim to the property to the satisfaction of the organization or fails to file an action to recover the property on loan to the organization within the one hundred twenty days specified in Section 27-45-60.
(C) If a nonprofit organization fails to follow the appropriate methods for notifying the lender as provided in Section 27-45-30 or 27-45-40, the lender may present proof of his claim to the board within ten years from the date the loan was terminated pursuant to this chapter. If the board finds the lender's claim to be valid, and the nonprofit organization is not able to present written proof of notice to terminate the loan in the appropriate method provided in Section 27-45-30 or 27-45-40, the nonprofit organization is liable to the lender for:
(1) the return of the property; or
(2) an amount equal to the property's fair market value on the date it was discarded, sold, or traded by the nonprofit organization, and interest, at the legal rate, from that same date.
