Boardman Township Land Reutilization Program

In conformance with the Mission of Boardman Township and the Boardman Township Zoning Department, the Boardman Township Land Reutilization Program stabilizes and enhances the neighborhoods of Boardman Township by demolishing blighted and abandoned structures, acquiring tax-delinquent parcels to put them back into productive use, and offering parcels for sale to eligible citizens, so that Boardman continues to be “A Nice Place to Call Home.”

Property Donation Criteria

Boardman Township Land Reutilization Program welcomes donations of properties within Boardman Township under the following conditions:

  • Real estate taxes must be paid in full at the time of donation, unless the property is eligible for a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure;
  • The property cannot have any judgment liens or other encumbrances, which may include but are not limited to mortgages, unpaid utility bills, mechanic's liens and state or federal tax liens;
  • The property cannot have open code violations, unless the Land Reutilization Program determines that demolition of a structure is necessary and funding is available.

The Boardman Land Reutilization Program requests a recent title search of the aforementioned parcels to prove ownership and that the property is free of liens and encumbrances.

You may contact a title agency to order title work or reimburse the Land Bank for the cost of title work. At present, Boardman Township is paying from $100 to $125 for title reports without insurance. If you would like the Boardman Township Land Bank to order the title work, please contact us first so we may confirm the amount. Also, pre-payment for title work will be required in certified funds. The Boardman Township Land Reutilization Program will not accept personal checks.

Boardman Township Land Reutilization Program reserves the right to decline any donations at any time.
