30:4-80.4. Lien against goods, rights, credits, etc., held by another for use of patient or persons chargeable
If it is found that any patient or other persons chargeable under said lien are possessed of any goods, rights, credits, chattels, moneys or effects which are held by any person, firm or corporation for the present or subsequent use of said patient, or other persons chargeable under said lien, then the lien provided for herein, or a notice of the existence thereof, may be forwarded by registered mail to said person, firm or corporation and shall become binding upon any property rights so held. Such person, firm or corporation shall thereafter be precluded from disposing of said property rights until said lien is satisfied or until the holder of the lien consents thereto.
