§ 152.09  EXPENSE OR CIVIL PENALTY BECOMES LIEN ON PROPERTY.
   (A)   If the city incurs expenses under § 152.08, or if a civil penalty is assessed under § 152.99, the city may assess the expenses or civil penalty on, and the city has a lien against, unless it is a homestead protected by the State Constitution, the property on which the building was located.
   (B)   The lien is extinguished if the property owner or another person having an interest in the legal title to the property reimburses the city for the expense or pays the civil penalty.
   (C)   The lien arises and attaches to the property at the time the notice of the lien is promptly recorded and indexed in the office of the County Clerk.
   (D)   The notice must contain the name and address of the owner if that information can be determined with a reasonable effort, a legal description of the real property on which the building was located, the amount of expenses incurred by the city or civil penalty assessed, and the balance due.
