What is a code violation?
  • Code violations range from property registration non-compliance, trash in the yard, maintenance issues, over-grown lawns, improvements made without permits, zoning issues, occupancy permits, public nuisance & safety issues, and any hazardous conditions on property.
  • Fines for these violations can range from nominal amounts to fees that compound daily in excess of $1000.00 (Average $250.00).
  • Code Violations are not recorded as liens and thus are not captured by a public records title search. This creates a greater challenge for those processing REO liquidations.
  • The unrecorded nature of code violations and lack of proactive management opens multiple doors to risk, exposure, and liability.
What is a Vacant Property Registration?
  • Vacant Property Registration (“VPR”) ordinances impose financial liability on the mortgagee based on the mortgagee’s contractual right to manage and control the property once there has been a default.
  • Almost all municipal Vacant Property Registrations require vacant property registration at time of first vacancy according to the “letter of the law."
  • Some property registrations require registration at time of foreclosure action – Notice of Default.
  • Most municipal registration ordinances include a rental/tenant/landlord registration requirement.
