Another source had this description of Ohio law: The state has a general lien provision which does not subordinate previously perfected security interests. Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 3734.20. However, the lien statute has some features worth noting. The owner of property where the state is performing a response action can be forced to grant an easement to the state for the duration of the cleanup. Moreover, the state can force the owner to record restrictive covenants that limit the uses of the land if certain future uses could interfere with the remedial action. 3734.22.
