The financial institution may charge a reasonable fee to cover the cost for recording the satisfaction or cancellation.

In the event the financial institution fails to record the satisfaction or cancellation within thirty days of receipt of the full amount necessary to satisfy the debt or obligation secured by the mortgage, it must pay to the mortgagor upon demand a penalty in the amount of one hundred dollars or in the alternative the mortgagor is entitled to the remedies provided by Sections 29-3-310 and 29-3-320 if these sections apply. However, a violation of this section is not considered to be a violation of Sections 29-3-310 and 29-3-320. Failure to pay this one hundred dollar penalty within ten days after demand subjects the financial institution to additional penalties of one hundred dollars for each ten days or portion thereof the penalty remains unpaid after receipt of demand."
