§ 92.23  LIENHOLDER RIGHTS, LIEN PRECEDENCE.
   (A)   A lienholder of record who has registered pursuant to § 92.22 of this chapter may, within 45 days from the date of issuance of notification under § 92.22(D) of this chapter:
      (1)   Correct the violation: if it has not already been abated; or
      (2)   Pay all civil fines assessed for the violation, and all charges and fees incurred by the city in connection with enforcement of this chapter, including abatement costs.
   (B)   Nothing in this section shall prohibit the city from taking immediate action if necessary under § 92.12 of this chapter.
   (C)   The lien provided by § 92.20 of this chapter shall not take precedence over previously recorded liens if:
      (1)   The city failed to comply with the requirements of § 92.22 of this chapter for notification of the final order; or
      (2)   A prior lienholder complied with division (A) above.
   (D)   A lien that does not take precedence over previously recorded liens under division (C) above  shall, if the final order remains partially unsatisfied, continue to take precedence over all other subsequent liens, except liens for state, county, school board and city taxes.
   (E)   The city may record a lien before the 45-day period established in division (A) above expires. If the lien is fully satisfied prior to the expiration of the 45-day period, the city shall release the lien in the County Clerk’s office where the lien is recorded within 15 days of satisfaction.
   (F)   Failure of the city to comply with §§ 92.22 and 92.23 of this chapter, or failure of a lien to take precedence over previously filed liens as provided in division (C) above, shall not limit or restrict any other remedies the city has against the property of the violator.
