Many of the statutes are based on the class of city. The statutes include: KRS 65.8835, KRS 67A.795, KRS 67A.889, KRS 76.170, KRS 76.241, KRS 98.013, KRS 107.160, KRS 381.770, KRS 381.780

Recording requirements are the same as a Lis Pendens. See Lis Pendens Section

The document must be signed by the person or entity asserting the lien or their attorney or agent. The signature does not need to be notarized.

Indexing information: Indexed as a Lis Pendens, these documents are filed in the encumbrance book and indexed in the encumbrance index per KRS 382.460. They are indexed under the names of each person whose interest in the property is affected. The first party is the property owner. The second party is the entity asserting the lien.
