Q: How can I acquire a property through the BLBA?
A: You can purchase properties from the BLBA through one of three programs: Side-Lot Program; Adopt-a-Lot Program, and through a General Request. The Side-Lot and Adopt-a- Lot Programs allow you to use a vacant lot either directly adjacent to your owner-occupied property (Side-Lot) or in the same neighborhood as your owner-occupied property (Adopt-a- Lot). In both programs, you get rights to enter, use, and maintain the property for two years. At the end of the two year period, the BLBA can assist you in clearing the title so you own it in perpetuity. Through a General Request, the BLBA will clear the title first before selling the property to you. This program is for properties that have structures or for which you have plans to build or develop the property immediately. A full description of all three programs is available in the adopted Policies & Procedures in the About Us section.
