The City of Henderson is cracking down on deadbeat owners/banks and working to keep our neighborhoods looking beautiful and retaining our property values. Failure to comply could be costly!
News now, recently reported on a decision that was made earlier this year by the City Council of Henderson. They passed the “Abandoned Residential Real Property Registry Ordinance” (Ordinance No. 3121) requiring the registration of abandoned residential property and those in danger of becoming abandoned. “The Ordinance was established to reduce and prevent neighborhood blight, to mitigate conditions that threaten the health, safety, and welfare of the public, and to promote neighborhood stability.”
The City of Henderson has retained a company, Applied Analysis, to help implement and maintain a foreclosure registry called RegisterHenderson.com There is a registration fee in the amount of $200.00 to be paid at the time of registration, and an annual renewal in the amount of $200.00 every year thereafter if a property still meets registration requirements. The ordinance requires registration for abandoned or soon to be abandoned properties.
So you might be wondering, How does it work? Property inspection will take place within 30 calendar days after filing a notice of default or being notified that a property may be abandoned or in danger of becoming abandoned. It is required that a Property registration and designation of a property manager take place within 10 days of the inspection. It is required that landscaping visible from the public right-of-way shall be maintained pursuant to the minimum property maintenance requirements required by the City and pools and spas must be kept in working order so the water remains clear and free of pollutants and debris or drained and kept dry. The City wants to make sure homes are properly secured and that the property shall be maintained in a secure manner to prevent accessibility to unauthorized persons. Doors, windows, gates and other openings that make the property accessible must be closed and locked.
So now that you know how it works you might be wondering what you can do to help move the process along? Simply stated, you can report vacant foreclosures in your Henderson neighborhood. If you believe that there is a vacant foreclosure in your neighborhood that is either unregistered or the owner of a foreclosed vacant property is failing to properly maintain the property, send an email to [email protected] You can also contact Applied Analysis directly at: www.RegisterHenderson.com Property Compliance Notices, 6385 South Rainbow Blvd..

Failure to comply could be costly for the owner if the City of Henderson Code Enforcement determines that a lender has failed to register the property (and they will), a City of Henderson officer or employee may issue a notice, violation, and/or citation as necessary. Administrative fines and fees can really add up since they are assed at a rate of $150.00 per day, and criminal misdemeanor citations and other civil actions may be issued for failure to comply with the ordinance.
