Tex. Spec. Dist. Local Laws Code Section 3808.156
Assessments; Lien for Assessments


The board by resolution may impose and collect an assessment for any purpose authorized by this chapter.


An assessment, a reassessment, or an assessment resulting from an addition to or correction of the assessment roll by the district, penalties and interest on an assessment or reassessment, an expense of collection, and reasonable attorney’s fees incurred by the district:


are a first and prior lien against the property assessed;


are superior to any other lien or claim other than a lien or claim for county, school district, or municipal ad valorem taxes; and


are the personal liability of and charge against the owners of the property even if the owners are not named in the assessment proceeding.


The lien is effective from the date of the board’s resolution imposing the assessment until the date the assessment is paid. The board may enforce the lien in the same manner that the board may enforce an ad valorem tax lien against real property.


The board may correct, add to, or delete assessments from its assessment rolls after notice and hearing as provided by Subchapter F (General Powers Relating to Assessments), Chapter 375 (Municipal Management Districts in General), Local Government Code.
Acts 2003, 78th Leg., ch. 1277, Sec. 1, eff. April 1, 2005.
