New Jersey Liens for Service to Horses and for the Care of Horses

NOTE: New Jersey has a combined statute that covers agisters, veterinarians, and farriers. The statute does not explicitly cover breeders, but might be stretched to do so.

NEW JERSEY STATUTES
TITLE 2A. ADMINISTRATION OF CIVIL AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE
SUBTITLE 6. SPECIFIC CIVIL ACTIONS
CHAPTER 44. LIENS--BONDS OF AND MONEY PAID TO CONTRACTORS ON PUBLIC WORKS
ARTICLE 7. LIVERY STABLES, AND BOARDING AND EXCHANGE STABLE KEEPERS

2A:44-51. Right of lien; retention of property when amount due unpaid

Every keeper of a livery stable or boarding and exchange stable, shall have a lien on all animals left with him in livery, for board, sale or exchange and upon all carriages, wagons, sleighs and harness left with him for storage, sale or exchange for the amount due such proprietor for the board and keep of such animal and also for such storage, and shall have the right, without process of law, to retain the same until the amount of such indebtedness is discharged.

As used in this section, "keeper of a livery stable" shall include, but need not be limited to, a proprietor of a stable, a trainer, a veterinarian, a farrier, or any other person who has a financial relationship with the owner of the horse.

2A:44-52. Sale of retained property; disposition of proceeds

Property retained by the proprietor under this article shall be sold at public auction, after the expiration of 30 days from the date of such retention.

Notice of the sale shall be first published once in each of the 2 weeks preceding the day of the sale in a newspaper circulating in the municipality in which the stable is situated, and 5 days' notice of the sale shall be given by posting a copy of the notice in 5 public places in the municipality.

The proceeds of sale after the deduction of the expenses thereof shall first be applied to the payment of the indebtedness, and the balance, if any, shall be paid to the owner of the property, or his representative. The balance, if not claimed by the owner within 60 days after sale, shall be paid to the municipality, in which the stable is situated, for the support of the poor.
