If the responsible person fails to pay civil penalties in an AEO the County may record the order as a lien against the real property upon which a violation is located in accordance with the following procedures:
(a) Before recording, the Director shall serve the responsible person with a Notice of Intent to Record an AEO which informs the responsible person that recording the order will result in a lien against real property unless the responsible person pays the amount due within 30 days from the date of the notice. The Director shall serve the Notice of Intent to Record as provided by Section 18.206. The Notice of Intent to Record may be served at the same time as the AEO.
(b) If the responsible person fails to pay the amount due in full by the due date the County may record the AEO as a lien. The lien shall attach upon recording the order in the Office of the County Recorder. The lien shall continue until the amount of the lien is paid in full and the violations listed in the AEO are corrected.
(c) Notice of recording the AEO as a lien may be provided to the responsible person as provided by Government Code section 27297.5.
