• CHAPTER 42. - ABANDONED PROPERTY or (VACANT PROPERTY)
Abandoned or vacant real property negatively impacts the community and causes blight. Many properties undergoing foreclosure are vacant prior to the conclusion of the foreclosure process and can go unoccupied for months or even years. Thus, leaving the properties abandoned and untended for extended periods of time awaiting foreclosure sale. It is the purpose and intent of this chapter to establish a registration process to limit and reduce the deterioration of property which have been abandoned due to a foreclosure or where ownership had been transferred to a lender or mortgagee by any legal method.
