17-630.Mortgages and deeds of trust for securing bonds of interstate gas pipelines and certain public utilities or indebtedness incurred under rural electrification act; execution and filing; notice. Every mortgage or deed of trust, or satisfaction thereof, covering any real or personal property situated in this state, made to secure the payment of bonds issued or to be issued thereafter by any corporation which is an interstate gas pipeline company, or by any public utility as defined in K.S.A. 66-104, and amendments thereto, except nothing herein shall apply to or affect railroad corporations, and every mortgage or deed of trust, or satisfaction thereof, covering any real or personal property situated in this state made to secure any indebtedness incurred under the rural electrification act of 1936, as amended (U.S. code, title 7, chapter 31), shall be executed and duly acknowledged and certified, as other instruments affecting real estate. Such mortgage or deed of trust, or satisfaction thereof shall be filed in the office of the secretary of state accompanied by the form prescribed by K.S.A. 84-9-521(a), and amendments thereto, which must indicate in box 10 of the form that the instrument is filed in accordance with this section. The secretary shall certify that the instrument has been filed in the secretary's office by endorsing upon the original signed instrument the word "filed" and the date and hour of its filing. This endorsement is the "filing date" of the instrument and is conclusive of the date and time of its filing in the absence of actual fraud. The secretary of state shall thereupon file and index the endorsed instrument in accordance with part 5 of article 9 of the uniform commercial code, and amendments thereto. The instrument shall be effective upon the record until terminated and the secretary of state shall remove the record one year after termination. The filing of such instrument in the office of the secretary of state shall be notice to all persons of the contents thereof and to all subsequent purchasers and encumbrancers of the rights and interests of the parties thereto as to property described in the filed instrument and property acquired subsequent to the execution thereof if the instrument so provides. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, no other filing of any such instrument shall be necessary. Any such mortgage or deed of trust filed in the office of the register of deeds of any county in this state may be refiled in the office of the secretary of state in the manner provided in this section. Such refiling shall thereafter as to any property not previously released from such mortgage or deed of trust be of the same effect as if the instrument had been originally filed in the office of the secretary of state. The secretary of state shall charge the same filing and information retrieval fees and credit the amounts in the same manner as financing statements filed under part 5 of article 9 of the uniform commercial code, and amendments thereto.
