§1727.  Recordation and effect of notice of assessment

A.  The administrator may cause a copy of the notice of assessment to be filed in the mortgage records of any parish in this state without costs in which the administrator believes that the employer is engaged in business, resided or owns movable or immovable property.  The notice of  assessment when filed for record shall have the same legal effect as a judgment and shall operate as a first lien, privilege, and mortgage on all of the movable or immovable property of the employer from the date of such filing.

B.  The notice of assessment shall not affect liens, privileges, chattel mortgages, security interests under Chapter 9 of the Louisiana Commercial Laws, R.S. 10:9-101 et seq., or mortgages already affecting or burdening such property at the date of such filing; however, such filing shall be sufficient to cover all unpaid contributions, interest, and penalties that may accrue after such filing and the property of such employer shall be subject to seizure and sale for the payment of such contributions, interest, and penalties according to the preference and rank of said lien, privilege, security interest, and mortgage securing their payment.

Added by Acts 1972, No. 336, §1; Acts 1999, No. 49, §1.
