PROPERTY SURVEY RESULTS
In 2014, the Sandusky-Erie County Community Foundation provided grant dollars to the Thriving Communities Institute for a property inventory to be completed for the City of Sandusky. Information from this survey can now be utilized to identify vacant and abandoned structures and develop strategies to address future economic development, rehabilitation, or demolition, where necessary.
VACANT AND ABANDONED PROPERTY REGISTRATION &
MAINTENANCE BOND REQUIREMENTS
In an effort to foster a safe and healthy living environment for the community, the city requires both owners of vacant and/or abandoned properties or those responsible parties foreclosing on properties to register them on an annual basis. This registration will help keep vacant and/or abandoned properties in compliance with the city's Code of Ordinances and will provide the city with contact information related to the responsible party for the property, or a local property preservation company charged with maintaining the condition and security of each property.
- The registration is limited to those properties which are owned or being foreclosed on by a bank, lender, mortgage company or servicing company.
- Registrations are to be filed with Division of Code Enforcement no later than January 31 of the year in which registration is sought.
- The annual registration fee is $125 per property.
- Each registered property is also required to provide a $10,000 cash maintenance bond to ensure the continued maintenance of the property throughout the foreclosure process and vacancy.
For additional information, contact the Code Enforcement Division at 419.627.5913.
VACANT & ABANDONED BUILDINGS
The Sandusky Fire Department's Prevention Bureau has made efforts to catalog and visually identify vacant and abandoned buildings. These are buildings that provide the highest safety/life risk to the general public. The building markings also help to identify the level of risk to safety service personnel who may have to enter the building in the case of an emergency.
