Post-Hearing Processes

If you are a home owner that has been found Guilty Judgment or received a Notice of Compliance, you must remediate it and/or paid in full with the recorder of mortgages 30 days after the hearing.

Home owners found guilty of blight at a hearing have the following options to avoid sale of their property:

Within 30 days of the hearing:

Within 30 days of the following may be submitted:

  • Clear printed photos showing that all violations have been abated, and photos of the front, rear, and right and left side of the structure.
  • Applicable permit(s) and Certificate of Completion and/or Certificate of Occupancy from the Department of Safety and Permits.
  • Cashier’s check or money order in the amount of the administrative judgment, minus the daily fines.

After 30 days of the hearing:

More than 30 days after a hearing, unless all violations have been abated, only the total amount of the judgment including daily fines will be accepted.

After 30 days, waiver of daily fines will only be considered upon submission of a completed Lien Waiver Application with supporting documentation. A Lien Waiver Application is a form submitted to Code Enforcement requesting that some/all  of the fines imposed for public nuisance and blight violations be waived.  Forgiveness of partial fines is considered when the property in question has been brought into full compliance with the City housing code, and only when the application is completed in full with supplemental documentation (proof of compliance).
