Applicant Eligibility

Birmingham Land Bank Authority Programming is geared toward creating partnerships.

The BLBA and City of Birmingham is extinguishing municipal liens and assessments and expending staff time and resources with the understanding that the purchaser will maintain and develop the property and pay taxes on it. Strong consideration will be given to applicants whose stated intended use, capacity and experience align with the mission and goals of the BLBA.

Along those lines, applicants must demonstrate capacity to complete proposed purchases and projects. Evidence of irresponsible property ownership is also taken into account in evaluating eligibility. Please look through the following questions which will guide the BLBA on initial applicant eligibility.
