            50.340. All county officers, excepting public administrators and notaries public, in all counties of class one shall be compensated for their services by salaries only. It shall be the duty of any such county officer in any such county to charge on behalf of the county every fee that accrues in or to his office and to receive the same and all fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties and charges that may be taxed in his office. All such fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties and charges imposed by law and collected by such officer shall be paid into the county treasury and become the property of the county. The county commission of such counties shall determine by a proper order when such fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties or charges so collected by any of the officers of said county shall be paid and turned over to the county treasury and how they shall be accounted for. The county commission shall require a sworn or affirmed statement by each county officer, showing such items collected in detail, their source, character and the aggregate amount thereof, and shall require a copy of such sworn or affirmed statement to be filed in the office of the county clerk in said county. [Nothing herein contained shall be construed to include the performance by the sheriff of his duties as trustee in any deed of trust or mortgage with power of sale, within the term "services" used herein.]

            95.535. All public officers, excepting the public administrator and notaries public, in the city of St. Louis shall be compensated for their services by salaries only. It shall be the duty of any public officer in such city to charge on behalf of the city every fee that accrues in or to his office and to receive the same and all fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties and charges that may be taxed in his office. All such fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties and charges imposed by law and collected by such officer shall be paid into the city treasury and become the property of the city. The comptroller of such city shall determine by a proper order the current or future dates or periods when such fees, fines, costs, commissions, penalties or charges so collected by any of the officers in said city shall be paid and turned over to the city treasury and how they shall be accounted for. The comptroller shall require a sworn or affirmed statement by each public officer, showing such items collected in detail, their source character and the aggregate amount thereof, and shall require a copy of such sworn or affirmed statement to be filed in the office of the city register. [Nothing herein contained shall be construed to include the performance by the sheriff of his duties as trustee in any deed of trust or mortgage with power of sale, within the term "services" used herein.]

            204.628. Any user fees or charges, connection fees, or other charges levied by the reorganized common sewer district to fund its general or special operations, maintenance, or payment of bonded indebtedness or other indebtedness shall be due at such time or times as specified by the reorganized common sewer district, and shall, if not paid by the due date, become delinquent and shall bear interest from the date of delinquency until paid. In addition to and consistent with any other provision of applicable law, if such fees or charges or other amounts due become delinquent, there shall be a lien upon the land, and a notice of delinquency shall be filed with the recorder of deeds in the county where the land is situated. The reorganized common sewer district shall file with the recorder of deeds a similar notice of satisfaction of debt when the delinquent amounts, plus interest and any recording fees or attorneys' fees, have been paid in full. [The lien created may be enforced by foreclosure by power of sale vested in the reorganized common sewer district if the reorganized common sewer district adopts written rules for the exercise of power of sale consistent with the provisions of sections 443.290 to 443.325 which are recorded in the land records of the office of the recorder of deeds in each county in which the district is located.] Otherwise, such lien shall be enforced by suit in the circuit court having jurisdiction against the property subject to the lien for judicial foreclosure and sale by special execution. Such suit may include a request for judgment against the persons responsible for payment of such delinquency as well as the person or persons owning the property to which services were provided, if different, including post-sale deficiency, and as a part of the relief, may include award of the district's reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, and other expenses reasonably incurred by the district for collection.

            443.285. Beginning August 28, 2013, all foreclosure proceedings shall handled judicially as provided in sections 443.190 to 443.280.

            448.080. 1. Every unit owner shall pay his proportionate share of the expenses of administration, maintenance and repair of the common elements and of any other expense lawfully agreed upon. Such proportionate share shall be in the same ratio as his percentage of ownership in the common elements as set forth in the declaration. Payment thereof shall be in the amounts and at the times as determined by the unit owners or the board of managers, as hereinafter provided.

            2. If any unit owner fails or refuses to make any payment of the common expenses when due, the amount thereof shall constitute a lien on the interest of such unit owner in the property, and upon the recording of notice thereof by the manager or board of managers shall be a lien upon such unit owner's interest in the property prior to all other liens and encumbrances, recorded or unrecorded; except only taxes, special assessments and special taxes theretofore or thereafter levied by any political subdivision or municipal corporation of this state and other state or federal taxes which by law are a lien on the interest of such unit owner prior to preexisting recorded encumbrances thereon, and encumbrances on the interest of such unit owner recorded prior to the date such notice is recorded which by law would be a lien thereon prior to subsequently recorded encumbrances, but only if such prior recorded encumbrance contains a statement of a mailing address in the state of Missouri where notice may be mailed to the encumbrancer thereunder. Any encumbrancer whose lien is junior to the lien of the common expenses herein provided may from time to time request in writing a written statement from the manager or board of managers setting forth the unpaid common expenses with respect to the unit covered by his encumbrance and unless the request is complied with within twenty days, all unpaid common expenses which became due prior to the date of the making of such request shall be subordinate to the lien of such encumbrance. Any encumbrancer holding a lien on a unit may pay any unpaid common expenses payable with respect to such unit and upon such payment such encumbrancer shall have a lien on such unit for the amounts paid at the same rank as the lien of his encumbrance.

            3. The lien to secure payment of common expenses shall be in favor of the members of the board of managers and their successors in office and shall be for the benefit of all other unit owners, and may be foreclosed by an action brought in the name of the board of managers in like manner as a mortgage of real property, as provided in sections 443.190 to [443.310] 443.280. Unless otherwise provided in the declaration, the members of the board of managers and their successors in office, acting on behalf of the other unit owners, shall have the power to bid in the interest so foreclosed at foreclosure sale, and to acquire and hold, lease, mortgage and convey the same.

            4. In the event any person acquires or is entitled to the issuance of a sheriff's or other official deed in foreclosure of the lien for common expenses above provided, the deed conveying the interest of any unit owner and the interest so acquired shall be subject to all of the provisions of sections 448.005 to 448.210 and to the terms, provisions, covenants, conditions and limitations contained in the declaration, the plat, the bylaws or any deed affecting such interest then in force.

            448.3-116. 1. The association has a lien on a unit for any assessment levied against that unit or fines imposed against its unit owner from the time the assessment or fine becomes due. The association's lien may be foreclosed in like manner as a mortgage on real estate [or a power of sale pursuant to chapter 443]. Unless the declaration otherwise provides, fees, charges, late charges, fines, and interest charged pursuant to subdivisions (10), (11), and (12) of subsection 1 of section 448.3-102 are enforceable as assessments pursuant to this section. If an assessment is payable in installments, the full amount of the assessment is a lien from the time the first installment thereof becomes due.

            2. A lien pursuant to this section is prior to all other liens and encumbrances on a unit except:

            (1) Liens and encumbrances recorded before the recordation of the declaration;

            (2) A mortgage and deed of trust for the purchase of a unit recorded before the date on which the assessment sought to be enforced became delinquent;

            (3) Liens for real estate taxes and other governmental assessments or charges against the unit;

            (4) Except for delinquent assessments or fines, up to a maximum of six months' assessments or fines, which are due prior to any subsequent refinancing of a unit or for any subsequent second mortgage interest. This subsection does not affect the priority of mechanics' or materialmen's liens, or the priority of liens for other assessments made by the association. The lien pursuant to this section is not subject to the provisions of section 513.475.

            3. Unless the declaration provides otherwise, if two or more associations have liens for assessments created at any time on the same real estate, those liens have equal priority.

            4. Recording of the declaration constitutes record notice and perfection of the lien. No further recordation of any claim of lien for assessment pursuant to this section is required.

            5. A lien for unpaid assessments is extinguished unless proceedings to enforce the lien are instituted within three years after the full amount of the assessments becomes due.

            6. This section shall not prohibit actions to recover sums for which subsection 1 of this section creates a lien, or prohibit an association from taking a deed in lieu of foreclosure.

            7. A judgment or decree in any action brought pursuant to this section shall include costs and reasonable attorney's fees for the prevailing party.

            8. The association shall furnish to a unit owner, upon written request, a recordable statement setting forth the amount of unpaid assessments against the unit owner's unit. The statement shall be furnished within ten business days after receipt of the request and is binding on the association, the executive board, and every unit owner.

            456.003. When the terms of an instrument creating a trust manifest intention that the trustee shall have the legal fee simple in land, the full legal ownership of an estate for years, or the absolute legal ownership of chattels personal, or investment securities or choses in action, an exercise by the trustee or a successor trustee of [an express or implied power of sale,] a mortgage, leasing, improvement or conducting any other transaction incident to the administration of the trust, shall bind the fee simple, term of years or absolute ownership notwithstanding the execution of a future interest under the trust into a legal estate or interest by the operation of the Statute of Uses, or former section 456.003, or a judicial doctrine imposing such execution on dry or passive trusts.

            493.055. All public advertisements and orders of publication required by law to be made, including but not limited to amendments to the Missouri Constitution[, legal publications affecting all sales of real estate under a power of sale contained in any mortgage or deed of trust,] and other legal publications affecting the title to real estate, shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation, qualified under the provisions of section 493.050, and persons responsible for orders of publication described in sections 443.310 and 443.320 shall be subject to the prohibitions in sections 493.130 and 493.140.           

            516.150. No suit[,] or action [or proceeding under power of sale] to foreclose any mortgage or deed of trust, to secure any obligation to pay money or property, shall be had or maintained after such obligation has been barred by the statutes of limitation of this state; nor in any event after the lapse of twenty years from the date at which the last maturing obligation secured by the instrument sought to be foreclosed is due on the face of such instrument, unless such termination of said period falls within two years after the passage of this section, or has heretofore happened, in which event such suit, action or proceeding may be begun within two years after the passage of this section without regard to the date of the instrument or the maturity of the obligation, unless otherwise barred under the provisions of the general statutes of limitation, unless before the lapse of said twenty years the owner of the debt thereby secured or some person for him shall file an affidavit duly verified, or file an instrument in writing acknowledged as deeds are required to be acknowledged in order to entitle them to record in this state, showing the amount due and owing thereon.

[443.290. All mortgages of real property or security agreements providing for a security interest in personal property, or both, with powers of sale in the mortgagee or secured party, and all sales made by such mortgagee, secured party or his personal representatives, in pursuance of the provisions of the mortgages or security agreements, shall be valid and binding by the laws of this state upon the mortgagors and debtors, and all persons claiming under them, and shall forever foreclose all right and equity of redemption of the property so sold. Nothing herein shall be construed to affect in any way the rights of a tenant to the growing and unharvested crops on lands foreclosed as aforesaid, to the extent of the interest of the tenant under the terms of contract or lease between the tenant and the mortgagor or his personal representatives.]

 

[443.300. If any person shall die owning real estate on which there is an outstanding deed of trust or mortgage of real estate, or having subjected personal property to a security interest with power of sale, shall die, no sale shall take place under the deed of trust or mortgage conveying real estate within six months after the death of such person, and no sale shall take place of personal property so subjected to a security interest within four months after the death of the person.]

  

[443.310. All sales of real estate under a power of sale contained in any mortgage or deed of trust executed after August 28, 1989, shall be made in the county where the land to be sold is situated, and not less than twenty days' notice of such sale shall be given, whether so provided in such mortgage or deed of trust or not. Where the property to be sold is located in more than one county, the property may be sold in any county where a part of the property is located.]

  

[443.320. The notice required by section 443.310 shall set forth the date and book and page of the record of such mortgages or deeds of trust, the grantors, the time, terms and place of sale, and a description of the property to be sold, and shall be given by advertisement, inserted for at least twenty times, and continued to the day of the sale, in some daily newspaper, in counties having cities of fifty thousand inhabitants or more, and in all other counties such notice shall be given by advertisement in some weekly newspaper published in such county for four successive issues, the last insertion to be not more than one week prior to the day of sale, or in some daily, triweekly or semiweekly paper published in such county at least once a week for four successive weeks. Such notice shall appear on the same day of each week, the last insertion to be not more than one week prior to the day of sale, and if there be no newspaper published in such county or city, such notice shall be published in the nearest newspaper thereto in this state. Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize the giving of any shorter notice than that required by such mortgage or deed of trust. Where the property to be sold lies wholly or in part within the corporate limits of any city having or that may hereafter have a population of fifty thousand inhabitants or more, then the notice provided for in this section shall be published in a daily newspaper in such city and where the property to be sold lies wholly or in part within the corporate limits of a city extending into two or more counties, then the notice provided for in this section shall be published in some newspaper published in the county in which the property lies, in the manner provided in this section for publication in such county, even though such property may lie in a city having a population of fifty thousand inhabitants or more. Where the property to be sold is located in more than one county, the notices required in this section shall be published in each county in which a part of the property is located. Other provisions of this section to the contrary notwithstanding, in any county of the first class not having a charter form of government and containing a portion of a city with a population over three hundred fifty thousand and in any county of the second class containing a portion of a city with a population over three hundred fifty thousand, the notice requirements of section 443.310 and this section may be met by advertisement in some weekly newspaper published in such counties for four successive issues, the last insertion to be not more than one week prior to the date of the sale.]

  

[443.325. 1. Any person desiring notice of sale under any deed of trust or mortgage with power of sale upon real property may, at any time subsequent to recordation of such deed of trust or mortgage, cause to be filed for record in the office of the recorder of each county in which any part or parcel of the real property is situated a duly acknowledged request for such notice of sale. This request shall specify the name and address of the person to whom the notice is to be mailed and shall identify the deed of trust or mortgage by stating the names of the parties thereto and the legal description of the land described therein and the book and page where the same is recorded or the recorder's number and shall be in substantially the following form:

"In accordance with RSMo, 443.325, request is hereby made that notice of sale under the deed of trust (or mortgage) recorded the .... day of ...., 20.., (as recorder's number .... or in Book ...., Page ....) of the records of .... County, Missouri, the legal description of the property being .... in County, Missouri, executed by .... as Grantor (or Mortgagor) in which .... is named as beneficiary (or Mortgagee) and .... as Trustee, be mailed to .... (Name) at ...., (Address) ...., (City) (State).

................. ...............

(Signature)

................. ...............

(Acknowledgment)" A separate request shall be filed for each person desiring notice of sale.

2. Upon the filing for record of such request, the recorder shall index the request in a separate index so that the name of the mortgagor or grantor shall be indexed as the grantor, and the name of the requesting party shall be indexed as the grantee.

3. In the event of foreclosure under a power of sale, the foreclosing mortgagee or trustee shall, not less than twenty days prior to the scheduled date of the sale, cause to be deposited in the United States mail an envelope certified or registered, and with postage prepaid, enclosing a notice containing the information required in the published notice of sale referred to in section 443.320, addressed

(1) To each person whose name and address is set forth in any such request recorded at least forty days prior to the scheduled date of sale; and

(2) To the person shown by the records in the office of the recorder of deeds to be the owner of the property as of forty days prior to the scheduled date of foreclosure sale at the foreclosing mortgagee's last known address for said record owner; and

(3) To the mortgagor or grantor named in the deed of trust or mortgage at the foreclosing mortgagee's last known address for said mortgagor or grantor.

(4) Actual receipt by the addressee of the envelope referred to above shall not be necessary to establish compliance with the notice requirements of subsection 3 hereof. Recording of receipt issued by the United States Post Office for certified or registered mail to evidence that said envelope has been delivered by the sender to the United States Post Office shall constitute proof of compliance with notice requirements of subsection 3 hereof.

4. The foreclosing mortgagee or trustee of a deed of trust or mortgage filed subsequent to a deed of trust or mortgage for which a request has been recorded in accordance with subsection 1 hereof shall give notice to each person named in each such request so long as the prior deed of trust or mortgage identified in such notice has not been released of record.

5. The release of a deed of trust or mortgage shall cancel of record all requests for notice which pertain to the deed of trust or mortgage identified in such request.]

  

[443.327. The trustee exercising a power of sale granted in any security instrument may in the trustee's discretion set the time for sale at any commercially reasonable time, unless the security instrument specifies an hour at which the sale is to occur. The time for sale will be deemed to be commercially reasonable if the sale is held between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the date of sale. If no time is stated in the notice of sale, then the sale shall be held at the time customary for such sales in the county. If the trustee elects to state a specific time for sale in the notice of sale, then the sale shall be held at the time stated in the notice unless the sale is continued as may be otherwise provided by law.]

 

[443.355. 1. A trustee exercising a power of sale granted in any security instrument may, in his discretion, continue the sale without readvertisement or mailing additional notice by announcing or causing to be announced on the day and at the time and place of sale the fact of such continuance. The announcement shall contain the date, time and place to which the sale is continued. No party shall have a cause of action for damages against a trustee for continuing or refusing to continue a sale as provided in this section.

2. Only one continuance shall be made under the authority granted by this section, which continuance shall be for a period of not to exceed seven days. The provisions of this section shall not prevent the holder of a security instrument and the owner of the land encumbered thereby from agreeing to more than one continuance or to continuances for more than one week. Nothing in this section shall prevent a trustee from abandoning a sale before its completion and commencing new sale proceedings after compliance with sections 443.310, 443.320 and 443.325.]

 

[443.380. Whenever any real estate within this state shall have been or shall hereafter be sold by any trustee or mortgagee, or sheriff or other person acting as trustee, under a power of sale given in any mortgage or deed of trust, the recitals in the trustee or mortgagee's deed concerning the default, advertisement, sale or receipt of the purchase money, and all other facts pertinent thereto, shall be received as prima facie evidence in all courts of the truth thereof.]

  

[443.390. In all cities in this state which now have or which may hereafter have three hundred fifty thousand inhabitants or more and in all counties in this state of the first class, no trustee's deed or mortgagee's deed under power of sale in foreclosure of any security instrument recorded prior to January 1, 1986, shall be accepted by the recorder of deeds for record unless:

(1) The principal note or notes or other principal obligations which were unpaid when the foreclosure sale commenced and for the default in payment of which foreclosure is had, are produced to the recorder; or

(2) If such notes are lost then the owner of the principal notes or obligations makes an affidavit that such notes are lost and produces such affidavit for the recorder. Upon such trustee's or mortgagee's deed being filed for record, the recorder shall make a notation on the principal note or notes or other principal obligations showing that such deed in foreclosure has been filed of record, in substantially the following form:
