Abandoned & Vacant Properties

The Code Enforcement Division receives many complaints concerning abandoned or foreclosed properties. These properties become a nuisance and an eyesore in our city just as they have throughout the country. Unfortunately, the process of foreclosure can take between 6 to 14 months.

During this transition period, owners often vacate the property before the bank or lender can take official possession of the property. Therefore we ask for your patience and understanding as the city is working with the banks and lenders to facilitate a process that will eliminate the nuisance during this transition period.

However, please keep in mind that the rules and regulations concerning foreclosed properties must be adhered to by the banks and lenders.
