(A) That the amount of the cost of repairs, alterations or improvements, or vacating and closing, or removal or demolition by the Inspector shall be a lien against the real property upon which the cost was incurred, which lien shall be filed, have the same priority, and be collected as the lien for special assessment provided in G.S. Chapter 160A, Article 10.
(B) If the real property upon which the cost was incurred is located within the corporate limits of the Village, then the amount of the cost is also a lien on any other real property of the owner located within the village limits or within one mile thereof except for the owner's primary residence.

Nothing in this section shall be construed to impair or limit in any way the power of the village to define and declare nuisances and to cause their removal or abatement by summary proceedings, or otherwise.
