Most cities or local government units around the United States, have in the past decade, developed and enacted some type of Vacant Property Registration Ordinance (VPROs). These steps were taken to directly mitigate and manage neighborhood blight cause by growing numbers of foreclosed, vacant and abandoned properties as a result of the housing market crash of 2017. Finding what property registration services your city offers may be as easy as typing in your city’s nomenclature on your computer search bar. For example, if you reside in the City of Palm Springs, CA you could visit their property registration page which will direct you to the official city webpage of Palm Springs. Once there, search for icons or department listings such as “Code Enforcement,” “Planning and Zoning,” “Property Registration,” “City Ordinances,” and others related to the topic.
