Final Orders Notification

House Bill 422, an act relating to local code enforcement, was adopted by the 2016 Kentucky General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Matt Bevin.

The bill consolidates code enforcement provisions, including nuisance codes. The bill also extends lien priority provisions to all code enforcement violations code. Local governments have a right to a lien for fines, fees, and charges for violations of local code enforcement ordinances, which lien may be superior to those of prior lienholders. Local governments must implement a notification system to lienholders in order to obtain lien priority over previously filed liens. The lienholder has the right to abate the violation or pay all fines, fees, and charges for violations within 45 days of notice.
