(1) As provided in 77-6-401 through 77-6-404, MCA, state land leases or licenses and leasehold interests may be pledged or mortgaged by the lessee or licensee. The pledgee or mortgagee shall file the pledge or mortgage or certified copy thereof with the department within 30 days of its receipt by him. Within 30 days after payment of the indebtedness, termination of the pledge agreement, or release of the mortgaged leasehold interest, the lessee or licensee shall file proof of that fact with the department.

(2) If a lessee or licensee mortgages his leasehold interest in state lands pursuant to 77-6-401, MCA, then there must be an assignment, signed by the lessee or licensee/mortgagor and the mortgagee, and placed in escrow. A copy of such escrow assignment must be filed with the department. An assignment is effective for the lease term during which it is made and any subsequent renewal term as long as the assignor continuously holds the lease. Failure to execute the terms of this rule shall be cause for the department not to recognize the mortgage.
