A Mortgaged/Lien Held in Default property is . . .
- A property subject to an ongoing foreclosure action, OR;

Why do I need to register my vacant property?
We want to ensure that the owners of vacant properties are known to the city and other interested parties and can be reached if necessary. We also want to make sure that owners of vacant properties are aware of the obligations of ownership under relevant codes and regulations and that they meet minimum standards of maintenance for those properties.
