Trying to buy a condemned property

1 Reply

Hi BP,

So there's a house 4 doors down from my inlaws, it's a fine C neighborhood. The house is condemned (I suspect it was abandoned after a fire), and it's making the area look terrible. Seems like a decent investment opportunity if I can get it for the cost of the land. I looked up the owner and it's registered to an LLC, who hasn't responded to my emails asking if it's for sale. The LLC seems like it's still active as well, they're at least doing their paperwork every year I think.

Is there anything I can do to force the sale of a condemned property if the owners won't take care of it?

Thanks!

I should add that this property isn't just condemned for some small thing - there's visible fire damage, broken windows, various structural damage, overgrown lawn, etc.
