AN ACT to amend the lien law, in relation to disclosing if the  property
  subject  to  lien  is  real property improved or to be improved with a

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision 7 of section 9 of the lien law, as amended by
chapter 515 of the laws of 1929, is amended to read as follows:
  7. The property subject to the lien, with a description thereof suffi-
cient for identification; and if in a city or village, its  location  by
street and number, if known; WHETHER THE PROPERTY SUBJECT TO THE LIEN IS
(A) REAL PROPERTY IMPROVED OR TO BE IMPROVED WITH A SINGLE FAMILY DWELL-
ING  OR  (B)  NOT REAL PROPERTY IMPROVED OR TO BE IMPROVED WITH A SINGLE
FAMILY DWELLING. A failure to state  the  name  of  the  true  owner  or
contractor,  or a misdescription of the true owner, shall not affect the
validity of the lien. The notice must be verified by the lienor  or  his
agent,  to  the effect that the statements therein contained are true to
his knowledge except as to the matters therein stated to be  alleged  on
information  and  belief, and that as to those matters he believes it to
be true.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
