(a) A road district may issue and transfer, on terms determined by the district, a certificate of assessment for each assessed lot or parcel.  A certificate of assessment may be issued under Chapter 1207 as if it were a bond.  On making a supplemental assessment or reassessment, the district shall provide a certificate of assessment reflecting any change in the value of the original assessment.

(b) A certificate must state:

(1) the amount of the lien on the assessed property;

(2) the liability of the property owner for the lien;

(3) the terms of transfer of the certificate;

(4) that the assessment was imposed and the certificate was issued under this subchapter;  and

(5) that the certificate is not an obligation of or secured by a pledge of the faith or credit of a county in which the district is located.

(c) A certificate is prima facie evidence of all the matters shown on the certificate.

(d) A holder of the certificate may enforce the assessment in the same manner as the district may enforce assessments made under this subchapter.
