(1) Subject to the requirements of this section and ORS 221.344 (Registration of municipal court), from the time that a judgment of a justice or municipal court is transcribed or recorded as provided in ORS 52.635 (Liens based on justice court judgment) or 221.351 (Liens based on municipal court judgment), the judgment creates a judgment lien as described in ORS 18.152 (Establishing judgment liens in other counties).

(2) The judgment lien of a judgment entered in a justice or municipal court may be eliminated as provided in ORS 18.154 (Appeal) if an appeal is taken from the judgment. The clerk of the justice or municipal court shall note the elimination of the lien in the judgment docket.

(3) When the lien of a justice or municipal court judgment ceases in the county in which the judgment was originally recorded or transcribed, the lien shall cease in every other county in which a certified copy of the judgment or a lien record abstract has been recorded. When the judgment has been fully satisfied, it is the responsibility of the judgment creditor to file a full satisfaction in any circuit court to which the judgment has been transcribed under ORS 52.635 (Liens based on justice court judgment), and to record the satisfaction in the County Clerk Lien Record for the county in which the court is located if a certified copy of the judgment or a lien record abstract for the judgment was recorded in that County Clerk Lien Record. Upon satisfaction in full of the judgment, the judgment creditor shall deliver to the judgment debtor an executed satisfaction of the judgment for any other county where a certified copy of the judgment or a lien record abstract has been recorded. The county clerk shall charge a fee as provided in ORS 205.320 (Fees collected by county clerk) for filing a satisfaction of judgment. [Formerly 18.355]
