Priorities of liens

(1) Except for any property tax liens, the lien created by ORS 87.352 (Mining labor and material lien) is prior and superior to all other liens, mortgages and encumbrances against the land upon which the lien is imposed without regard to whether the other liens, mortgages, or encumbrances attached to the land before or after the lien created by ORS 87.352 (Mining labor and material lien) attached.

(2) Except for tax liens, assessment liens, construction liens and liens created by ORS 87.352 (Mining labor and material lien) and 87.356 (Lien for preparing land for irrigation or cultivation), the lien created by ORS 87.362 (Irrigation power lien) is prior and superior to all other liens, mortgages and encumbrances against the land upon which the lien is imposed without regard to whether the other liens, mortgages or encumbrances attached to the land before or after the lien created by ORS 87.362 (Irrigation power lien) attached.

(3) Except that the lien created by ORS 87.356 (Lien for preparing land for irrigation or cultivation) is prior to the lien created by ORS 87.362 (Irrigation power lien) without regard to the date on which the lien created by ORS 87.362 (Irrigation power lien) attached to the land, the liens created by ORS 87.356 (Lien for preparing land for irrigation or cultivation) and 87.358 (Nurseryman's lien) are prior and superior to all other liens, mortgages and encumbrances of a subsequent date against the land upon which the liens are imposed. Property tax liens, whenever created, are prior and superior to the liens created by ORS 87.356 (Lien for preparing land for irrigation or cultivation) and 87.358 (Nurseryman's lien).

(4) Notwithstanding subsection (2) of this section, a lien created by ORS 87.362 (Irrigation power lien) does not have priority over a mortgage on the land recorded at the date of the first delivery of electricity for which a lien may be claimed unless the electric cooperative or electric utility delivers a notice in writing of its possible lien claim to the mortgagee within 30 days of the date of first delivery of the electricity.

(5) The notice required by subsection (4) of this section shall state in substance:

(a) That the electric cooperative or electric utility is starting to deliver electricity;

(b) The name of the person ordering the electricity; and

(c) That a lien on the land may be claimed for the cost of the electricity. [1975 c.648 §51]
