PART A1 gives existing property owners the opportunity to reduce the amount of liens assessed on their property as long as they ensure that there are no existing code violations. Liens will be reduced to $1,000 plus any costs associated with abatement of the property and administrative and prosecutorial costs incurred during enforcement.
PART B1 gives prospective owners with a bona fide purchase contract for the property the option to seek an anticipatory lien reduction. The property must be in compliance with all County codes or the prospective owner must enter into an agreement with the County to bring the property into compliance within 90 days of closing. Liens will be reduced to $1,000 or the County's actual abatement, administrative and prosecutorial costs incurred during enforcement, whichever is greater.
PART C1 gives NEW owners of properties purchased through a foreclosure sale, clerk’s sale or other judicially imposed sale, the opportunity to obtain a release of lien for any existing encumbrances for Code Enforcement Liens. The property in question must be in compliance with all county codes before the release will be granted. Tax deed sales and foreclosure short-sales are not judicially imposed sales and are not included in the criteria for the lien release program.
