Allegheny County Vacant Property Recovery Program / 2018 Side Yard and Blighted Structure Program 

For a limited time only, the Allegheny County Vacant Property Recovery Program will be accepting applications to acquire vacant properties for side yards to an owner-occupied primary residence or blighted structure remediation at a reduced cost to the applicant. Under the 2018 Side Yard and Blighted Structure Program, the County waives the standard parcel fee of $3,000 for applicants for a side yard to their primary residence and applicants proposing to demolish a blighted structure. The fee is reduced to $1,400 for applicants proposing to rehabilitate a blighted structure. All applicants are responsible for the appraised value of the property, a good faith deposit, and closing costs.

The application, which contains additional details about the program guidelines, can be found here. The property must be a vacant lot or vacant structure, have at least three years of tax delinquency, and typically be no larger than one acre. For more information, call 412-350-1090 or visit the program website. Applications are being accepted now through August 31, 2018. Only one application will be accepted per applicant and only five per participating municipality will be accepted.
