AS 28.10.391. Filing and Date of Notice.
- (a) The filing of the application and documents under AS 28.10.381
and the issuance of a new certificate of title are constructive notice of any liens or encumbrances against the
vehicle described in the certificate to a creditor of the owner, or to a subsequent purchaser or encumbrancer.
However, a lien or encumbrance on a vehicle for labor, material, transportation, storage, or similar activity, whether
or not dependent on possession for its validity, is subordinate only to a mortgage, conditional sale contract, or
similar lien or encumbrance properly filed on or before the time that the vehicle is subject to, or comes into
possession of, the lien or encumbrance claimant for the labor, material, transportation, storage, or similar activity.
- (b) If the documents referred to in AS 28.10.371
- 28.10.401 are received and filed in the central
office of the department within 10 days after the date that the documents were executed, the constructive notice dates
from the time of the execution of the documents. Otherwise, constructive notice dates from the time of receipt and
filing of the documents by the department as shown in its endorsement on the documents.
- (c) Filing as provided in AS 28.10.371
- 28.10.401 is the exclusive method of giving
constructive notice of a lien or encumbrance on a registered vehicle, except as to a lien dependent upon possession.
- (d) A lien or encumbrance, or a document creating and evidencing a lien or encumbrance is exempt from the other provisions
of law that require or relate to the recording or filing of a document creating and evidencing a lien or encumbrance
upon a vehicle of a type subject to registration under this chapter.
