§35-1-10. Notice of conveyance or lien; proof thereof.
Before any such conveyance of real estate or instrument
creating a lien thereon shall be made, the proper authorities of
such church, religious sect, society, or denomination, or of any
individual church, parish, congregation or branch, shall cause to
be published a notice describing the real estate and stating that
the same will be sold and conveyed, or subjected to a lien, as
the case may be, on or following a designated date. Such notice
shall be published as a Class II legal advertisement in
compliance with the provisions of article three, chapter fifty-
nine of this code, and the publication area for such publication
shall be the county where the land is situated. In lieu of such
publication, the notice may be read at the principal services of
such church, parish, congregation or branch, on at least two
separate occasions during a period of two weeks. No conveyance
or instrument creating a lien shall be made or become effective
until such notice shall be published or read, as aforesaid. An
affidavit setting forth the facts regarding such publication or
reading, shall accompany, and be recorded with, any deed of
conveyance or instrument creating a lien, and shall be sufficient
proof of the facts therein set forth.
