  • Henderson- Las Vegas Nevada ordinance requires banks to maintain foreclosed homes- It’s about time!

    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!

    Henderson- Las Vegas Nevada ordinance requires banks to maintain foreclosed homes– It’s about time!

    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 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 You can also contact Applied Analysis directly at: Property Compliance Notices, 6385 South Rainbow Blvd..

      I think this is crazy.
      Someone gets a loan, doesn’t make payments for a year or two before they get kicked out, then not only does the bank lose all those payments, they have to be responsible for the house?
      The bank loaned you money for the house of your dream, it wasn’t the banks dream house.
      Can we do this with cars too?
      Banks are in business to make money and the government imposing more bs regulation on them is going to cost someone money down the road.
      If I remember right it was the government that forced banks to make loans easier for low income minority that started all this crap (look up Barney Frank during the Clinton years)
