§38-12-8. Recordation of release; effect.
When the release has been so signed and acknowledged, it may
be presented for record to the clerk in whose office the lien
thereby intended to be released is recorded or docketed, and from
and after the time the same is so left for record (which time the
clerk shall indorse thereon) such lien shall be discharged and
extinguished, and the estate, of whatever kind, bound or affected
thereby, shall be deemed to be vested in the former owner or
those claiming under him, as if such lien had never existed.
