  306.410.  Duties of parties upon creation of lien or encumbrance — failure of owner to perform certain duties, penalty — name change, authorization to director required. — 1.  If an owner creates a lien or encumbrance on an outboard motor, motorboat, vessel, or watercraft:

  (1)  The owner shall immediately execute the application, either in the space provided therefor on the certificate of title or on a separate form the director of revenue prescribes, to name the lienholder on the certificate of title, showing the name and address of the lienholder and the date of his or her security agreement, and shall cause the certificate of title, the application and the required fee to be mailed or delivered to the director of revenue.  Failure of the owner to do so is a class A misdemeanor;

  (2)  The lienholder or an authorized agent licensed pursuant to sections 301.112 to 301.119 shall deliver to the director of revenue a notice of lien as prescribed by the director accompanied by all other necessary documentation to perfect a lien pursuant to section 306.400;

  (3)  To perfect a lien for a subordinate lienholder when a transfer of ownership occurs, the subordinate lienholder shall either mail or deliver, or cause to be mailed or delivered, a completed notice of lien to the department of revenue, accompanied by authorization from the first lienholder.  The owner shall ensure the subordinate lienholder is recorded on the application for title at the time the application is made to the department of revenue.  To perfect a lien for a subordinate lienholder when there is no transfer of ownership, the owner or lienholder in possession of the certificate shall either mail or deliver, or cause to be mailed or delivered, the owner's application for title, certificate, notice of lien, authorization from the first lienholder and title fee to the department of revenue.  The delivery of the certificate and executing a notice of authorization to add a subordinate lien does not affect the rights of the first lienholder under the security agreement;

  (4)  Upon receipt of the documents and fee required in subdivision (3) of this section, the director of revenue shall issue a new certificate of title containing the name and address of the new lienholder, and mail the certificate of title to the owner named in it or if a lienholder has elected to have the director of revenue retain possession of an electronic certificate of title, the lienholder shall either mail or deliver to the director a notice of authorization for the director to add a subordinate lienholder to the existing certificate as prescribed in section 306.405.  Upon receipt of such authorization and a notice of lien from a subordinate lienholder, the director shall add the subordinate lienholder to the certificate of title being electronically retained by the director and provide confirmation of the addition to both lienholders.

  2.  When an owner wants to add or delete a name or names on an application for certificates of title of an outboard motor, motorboat, vessel, or watercraft that would cause it to be inconsistent with the name or names listed on the notice of lien, the owner shall provide the director with documentation evidencing the lienholder's authorization to add or delete a name or names on an application for certificate of title.
