Buy a side lot
Are you a property owner living next to a vacant lot? If the lot shares a common edge with your property, you may be able to buy the lot for $150.
How it works
Side lot sales are a popular program and the Land Bank operates a one-stop shop in partnership with the City of Toledo, the City of Oregon, and Lucas County.
If we are the owner of a vacant lot that is an eligible side lot, we'll invite you to apply for it. You may then buy the lot.
You will combine the new side lot with your existing property. Doing so increases the homeowner's land value and brings the once-delinquent lot back to the tax rolls. Two next-door neighbors may want the same side lot. In this case, we will divide the new piece of land to meet the request.
Homeowners and businesses that are next door to a vacant lot are eligible to purchase under the program.
All side lot transfers need to follow our policies and local land use regulations. Some vacant lots are being held for strategic assembly purposes and won't be available under the program.
