In order to prevent illegal activity, vacant and foreclosed homes must now be registered. Failure to do this will result in a hefty fine for the homeowner, investor or bank.
City of Atlanta Vacant Property Registration Guidelines
Vacant means a building or dwelling which is lacking habitual presence of human beings who have a legal right to be on the premises, or at which substantially all lawful business or construction operations or residential occupancy has ceased for more than 60 days. Evidence of utility non-usage or service disconnect shall be prima facia evidence of vacancy. Such term shall not include a building or structure containing multiple units with common ownership that has at least one unit occupied with evidence of utility usage.
If the Code Enforcement Section issues a written notice of an existing vacant building or dwelling to the owner, the owner must file a registration statement within fifteen (15) days of such notice.
Registration shall remain valid for twelve (12) months from the date of registration. Residential Rental and Seasonally Vacant properties are exempt from registration (see Ordinance for definitions)
If the information provided in the initial registration statement changes, such as a new owner or agent, the owner must file an amended registration statement within twenty (20) days of such event at no additional fee.
