Which properties are eligible for receivership?
Properties eligible for receivership must be vacant buildings. A vacant building is legally defined as unfit for human habitation, it is not just a building that may currently be unoccupied or unused. The owner has been issued a Vacant Building Notice by Baltimore City. The owner of the property has been informed by the District Court of what they must do to comply with the law, and the owner has either refused to comply or cannot be located by the court.
All properties are located in Baltimore City. Occupied properties and vacant lots are not eligible for Receivership.
We auction all types of vacant buildings, including apartment buildings and commercial buildings, but the majority of our properties are single family homes.
