Tax foreclosure is a Lucas County tool that the Land Bank uses to help return abandoned properties to productive use.
How it works
Tax foreclosure is not a simple or fast process. All delinquent taxpayers have a right to due process and the opportunity to pay their taxes and keep their property. But when a property is truly abandoned, tax foreclosure is one of the only tools available to start fresh and make the land productive again.
