Sec. § 439.477
Lien on real property for costs of abating nuisance; action to foreclose lien.


All money expended by a health district in abating a nuisance and preventing its recurrence on real property pursuant to NRS 439.475 constitutes a lien upon the property and may be recovered by an action against the property.


Notice of the lien must be filed and recorded by the health district in the office of the county recorder of the county in which the property is situated not later than 6 months after the date on which the health district completes the abatement.


Any action to foreclose the lien must be commenced not later than 6 months after the filing and recording of the notice of the lien.


An action commenced pursuant to subsection 3 must be brought by the health district in the name of the health district.


When the property is sold, enough of the proceeds to satisfy the lien and the costs of foreclosure must be paid to the health district and the surplus, if any, must be paid to the owner of the property if known, and if not known, must be paid into the court in which the lien was foreclosed for the use of the owner if ascertained.
