  • Step 4: Missing property

    Don’t see a specific property listed on our map? Don’t worry it may still be eligible! Visit our useful links tab and check the Jefferson County Citizens Access Portal and the Alabama Department of Tax Revenue page to see if the property you want is Land Bank eligible. The Property must be at least 5 year’s or more tax delinquent, unoccupied, and deemed “Sold to State”. Once the eligibility of the property has been verified, visit our contact us page and fill out the form with information about the property. We will contact you on what to do next.

  • Step 5: Visit the Property

    Once you have identified the property that you want, visit the property and take photos. You’ll need these for your application. Only photos of the outside of the property is required. Please do not try to enter into these properties. You will also be required to upload pictures of any property that you own as well.

  • Step 6: The Plan

    Draft a document containing the plans that you have for the property that you are applying for. Be as detailed as possible by listing potential contractors that you plan to use, proof of funds, any previous rehabilitation experience, and a potential timeline. You will have time to fine tune this document during the inspection period.
