LIENS FOR LABOR AND MATERIAL
Subcontractors' liens; new residential property.
60-1103b. Subcontractors' liens; new residential property. (a) As used in this section, "new residential property" means a new structure which is constructed for use as a residence and which is not used or intended for use as a residence for more than two families or for commercial purposes. "New residential property" does not include any improvement of a preexisting structure or construction of any addition, garage or outbuilding appurtenant to a preexisting structure.
(b) A lien for the furnishing of labor, equipment, materials or supplies for the construction of new residential property may be claimed pursuant to K.S.A. 60-1101 or 60-1103 and amendments thereto after the passage of title to such new residential property to a good faith purchaser for value only if the claimant has filed a notice of intent to perform prior to the recording of the deed effecting passage of title to such new residential property. Such notice shall be filed in the office of the clerk of the district court of the county where the property is located.
(c) The notice of intent to perform and release thereof provided for in this section, to be effective, shall be deemed sufficient if in substantial compliance with the form set forth by the judicial council.
(d) When any claimant who has filed a notice of intent to perform has been paid in full or otherwise discharged, such claimant shall be required to file in the office in which the notice of intent to perform was filed, and to pay any requisite filing fee, a release of such notice and waiver of lien which shall be executed by the claimant, shall identify the property as set forth in the notice of intent to perform, and state that it is the intention of the claimant to waive or relinquish any statutory right to a lien for the furnishing of labor or material to the property. Upon such filing, the notice of intent to perform previously filed by such claimant shall be of no further force or effect, and such claimant's right to a lien under K.S.A. 60-1101 and 60-1103, and amendments thereto, shall be extinguished.
(e) Any owner of the real estate upon which a notice of intent to perform has been filed, or any owner's heirs or assigns, or anyone acting for such owner, heirs or assigns, and after payment in full to the claimant, may make demand upon the claimant filing the notice of intent to perform, for the filing of a release of the notice and waiver of lien as provided for in subsection (d), unless the same has expired by virtue of the provisions set forth in subsection (f).
(f) Notwithstanding the requirements of subsections (d) and (e), a notice of intent to perform shall be of no further force or effect after the expiration of 18 months from the date of filing the same, unless within such time the claimant has filed a lien pursuant to K.S.A. 60-1101 and 60-1103, and amendments thereto.
