(A)   The expense of the action shall be paid by the person in default. If the expense is not paid, it is a lien on the land or premises where the nuisance occurred. A lien established pursuant to this subsection shall have the same priority and be collected as unpaid ad valorem taxes.
   (B)   The expense of the action is also a lien on any other real property owned by the person in default within the town limits or within one mile of the town limits, except for the person’s primary residence. A lien established pursuant to this division (B) is inferior to all prior liens and shall be collected as a money judgment. This division (B) shall not apply if the person in default can show that the nuisance was created solely by the actions of another G.S. § 160A-193.
