Model Foreclosure and Vacant Real Property Registry Ordinance

June 28, 2012

Over the past two legislative sessions HB 110 underwent numerous changes in attempts by the General Assembly to place some statewide guidelines on local governments registries of vacant and foreclosed real property.  
 
HB 110 passed the General Assembly and was signed by the Governor this year and, as a result, GMA has developed a model ordinance for jurisdictions wishing to have a registry of vacant and foreclosed real property. This model ordinance follows the guidelines set in state law and should help cities keep track of those types of properties.
