Connecticut General Statutes > Title 13b > Chapter 245a > § 13b-302 - When adjoining owner neglects duty to erect or maintain fence
Current as of: 2009
When it is the duty of the owner of land adjoining any railroad to erect or maintain a fence between such land and such railroad and such owner has neglected to erect or maintain such fence and it has been erected or maintained by the railroad company in conformity to the order of the Commissioner of Transportation, such company may collect the cost of erecting and maintaining such fence from such owner. Such cost shall be a lien in favor of such company on such land, and such lien shall take precedence over any other lien or encumbrance on such land and may be foreclosed in the same manner as a mortgage lien, but shall not continue in force unless such company, within sixty days after the completion of such fence, files a certificate with the town clerk of the town in which such land is situated, describing such land and specifying the amount claimed as a lien on such land and the dates of the commencement and completion of such fence, which certificate shall be recorded by such clerk on the land records of such town.
