WVC 38 - 16 - 106 §38-16-106. Nonconsensual common law lien defined.
"Nonconsensual common law lien" means a fraudulent lien that is misrepresented as a valid lien because it:

(1) Is not provided for by a specific statute;

(2) Does not derive its existence from the consent of the owner of the affected property; and

(3) Is not an equitable lien or other lien imposed by a court of competent jurisdiction.
