WVC 38 - 10 D- ARTICLE 10D. SUPER FUND LIEN RECORDATION ACT.

WVC 38 - 10 D- 1 §38-10D-1. Recordation of federal superfund liens; release; fee.

(a) Pursuant to the authority of section 107(d) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, 42 U.S.C. §9607(1), notices of liens for costs and damages under said act (superfund liens) may be filed in an office designated by state law. Pursuant to said act, the office of the clerk of the county commission for the county in which the real property is located is hereby designated as the appropriate office for the filing of such notices of superfund liens.

(b) The clerk of the county commission of every county of this state shall, upon the filing in his/her office of any such notice of superfund lien upon the property of any person in favor of the United States, record such notice of lien without delay in the federal tax lien docket. He shall index such lien in the name of the person against whom the lien is claimed.

(c) Every such superfund lien shall be void as to any creditor, secured parties under a deed of trust, mortgagee, purchaser, holder of a security interest or judgment lien creditor, until and except from the time such lien is filed in the office of the clerk of the county commission of the county in which the real property subject to such lien is situated. In case the real property lies in more than one county, then such notice shall be filed in all counties in which the real property subject to such lien is situated.

(d) The clerk of such county commission shall, upon the filing in his/her office of any release of such lien issued by the regional counsel for the United States Environmental Protection Agency, record the same and make proper marginal notation thereof in the federal tax lien docket. No fee shall be charged by such clerk for recording of the notice of superfund lien, but he/she shall charge a fee of two dollars for recording such release or partial release.
