NRS 555.120
Expenses for abatement of nuisance become lien against property

  • notice of lien
  • action to foreclose lien
  • sales.


All sums paid by the Department constitute a lien on the property and premises from which the nuisance has been removed or abated pursuant to NRS 555.100 and 555.110, and may be recovered by an action against that property and premises.


A notice of lien must be filed and recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county in which the property and premises are situated within 30 days after the right to liens has accrued.


An action to foreclose a lien may be commenced at any time within 1 year after the filing and recording of the notice of lien, which action must be brought in the proper court by the district attorney of the county in the name and for the benefit of the Department.


If the property is sold, enough of the proceeds must be paid to the Department to satisfy the lien and costs, and the balance remaining, if any, must be paid to the owner of the property if the owner is known, and if not, into the Court for the owner’s use when ascertained. All sales under the provisions of this section and NRS 555.100 and 555.110 must be made in the same manner and upon the same notice as sales of real property under execution from a Justice Court.
