(a) A purchaser's lien is created for the amount of the deposit paid pursuant to and stated in a contract for the conveyance of land by the recording of such contract, or a notice thereof, in the records of the town in which the land is situated, provided the contract, or notice thereof, is executed by the owner and by the vendee of the land, witnessed and acknowledged in the same manner as required for a deed for the conveyance of land and describes the particular land to which it refers. Such purchaser's lien shall be prior to any other liens and encumbrances originating after the contract, or notice thereof, is recorded. A purchaser's lien may be foreclosed in the same manner as a mortgage. Transfer of title of the land to the vendee constitutes a release and discharge of the lien.
(b) Any notice recorded pursuant to this section shall, in addition to the requirements set forth in subsection (a) of this section, include (1) the address of the owner and the vendee, (2) the date provided in the contract for the performance of such contract or, if such date is not provided in such contract, the date on which such contract was executed, and (3) the amount of the deposit paid pursuant to the contract. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to affect the validity of any purchaser's lien created before October 1, 2004.
