    (a) In the case of a sale of a unit where delivery of a public offering statement is required pursuant to subsection 4-102(c) of this title, before conveying a unit, a seller shall:

    (1) record or furnish to the purchaser releases of all liens, except liens on real estate that a declarant has the right to withdraw from the common interest community, that the purchaser does not expressly agree to take subject to or assume and that encumber:

    (A) in a condominium, that unit and its common element interest; and

    (B) in a planned community, that unit and any limited common elements assigned to it; or

    (2) provide a surety bond or substitute collateral for or insurance against the lien.

    (b) Before conveying real estate to the association, the declarant shall have that real estate released from:

    (1) all liens the foreclosure of which would deprive unit owners of any right of access to or easement of support of their units; and
