(b) An estate or interest in real property in the name of a nonprofit association may be transferred by a person so authorized in a statement of authority recorded in the office of the county clerk in which a transfer of the property would be recorded.
(c) A statement of authority shall set forth:
(i) The name of the nonprofit association;
(ii) The address in this state, including the street address, if any, of the nonprofit association. If the nonprofit association does not have an address in this state, its address out of state;
(iii) The name or title of the person authorized to transfer an estate or interest in real property held in the name of the nonprofit association; and
(iv) The action, procedure or vote of the nonprofit association which authorizes the person to transfer the real property of the nonprofit association and which authorizes the person to execute the statement of authority.
(d) A statement of authority shall be executed in the same manner as a deed. The person who executes the statement of authority shall not be the named person in the statement of authority authorized to transfer the estate or interest.
(e) The filing officer may collect a fee for recording the statement of authority in the amount authorized for recording a transfer of real property.
(f) An amendment, including a cancellation, of a statement of authority shall meet the requirements for execution and recording of an original statement. Unless canceled earlier, a recorded statement of authority or its most recent amendment is canceled by operation of law five (5) years after the date of the most recent recording.
(g) If the record title to the real property is in the name of a nonprofit association and the statement of authority is recorded in the office of the county clerk in which a transfer of real property would be recorded, the authority of the person named in a statement of authority is conclusive in favor of a transferee who gives value without notice that the person named in the statement of authority lacks authority.
