[s27] Gov. Pence Signs Sen. Paul’s Bill to Assist Local Communities with Abandoned Properties

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (May 9, 2013) – Yesterday, Gov. Mike Pence signed State Sen. Allen Paul’s (R-Richmond) legislation to clarify procedures for assessing abandoned property.

Senate Enrolled Act 433 requires a county executive to include any abandoned property on a list of tax delinquent properties that is submitted to the county auditor. It also states that if a piece of abandoned property does not sell at a tax sale, then the county executive may only transfer it to a nonprofit organization after first giving people with a substantial interest in the property a chance to redeem it.  These people, however, must be able to repair and maintain the property.

“Many cities and towns across the state have difficulties dealing with abandoned properties in their communities,” Paul said. “Helping clarify the process for local governments is the first step toward preserving our neighborhoods while maintaining a respect for individual property rights.”

Paul was joined by the bill’s sponsor State Rep. Dick Hamm (R-Richmond) for the ceremonial signing.
