What is the Abandoned Property Registry?
On December 7, 2011, the City of Las Vegas City Council passed the Vacant Foreclosed Property Ordinance (Ordinance No. 6169) requiring the registration of vacant foreclosed properties to protect residential and commercial areas from blight resulting from the foreclosure crisis and un-maintained properties. On June 21, 2017 the City of Las Vegas City Council approved expanded provisions of the Vacant Foreclosed Property Program with the passing of Ordinance 6586.
The City of Las Vegas’ Vacant Foreclosed Property Ordinance (Ordinance No. 6586) applies to all types of property, including without limitation, single family and multifamily residential, commercial, industrial, entertainment and vacant properties.
If your property is in the City of Las Vegas, in default, abandoned or in danger of becoming abandoned, it is subject to the provisions of the City of Las Vegas Vacant Foreclosure Property Ordinance (Ordinance 6586). Any lender (or beneficiary or trustee who holds or has an interest in a deed of trust) on a property that is in default, located within the City of Las Vegas and abandoned or in danger of becoming abandoned must register that property.
If City of Las Vegas Code Enforcement determines that a lender has failed to register the property, notification of the failure to comply will be sent to the lender or the lender’s filing agent. Civil penalties of up to $500 per day for residential properties and $750 per day for commercial properties and criminal misdemeanor citations may be issued for failure to comply with the ordinance.
If you believe that there is a vacant foreclosure in your neighborhood that is either unregistered or the owner of a foreclosed vacant property is failing to properly maintain the property, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact us directly at 702 229-6615 Monday to Thursday between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Step 2 and 3 – Mortgagee and Property Manager Information
The registration requirements for the City of Las Vegas’ Vacant Foreclosed Property Ordinance (Ordinance No. 6586) may be satisfied by providing the City with contact information including street address and telephone number of the person(s) directly responsible for the property in foreclosure (mortgagee) and the property maintenance company contact information, including street address and phone number, for the staff of any property management or property preservation company responsible for the security, maintenance, and marking of the property.
Step 4 – Confirmation
Review all entered information for the Mortgagee and Property Manager. Click the Edit buttons to make any changes before submitting your registration.
Step 5 – Pay Registration Fees
Payment for the property registration may be mailed to the City of Las Vegas or submitted online using a credit card or check.
City of Las Vegas’ Vacant Foreclosed Property Ordinance (Ordinance No. 6586) requires a registration fee in the amount of $200.00 to be paid at the time of registration, and an annual renewal in the amount of $200.00 every year thereafter if a property still meets registration requirements. The initial fee and registration shall be valid for the time the property is in default, until the default is cured or the property is resold by the lender, or for one year, whichever occurs first. Changes to any of the contact, management or other required information require a $50.00 fee for update.
If it is determined that a property has been improperly registered, the registration fee will be refunded or the payment will be applied to an outstanding, unpaid registration if one exists for your company. Please send the details for the improperly registered property (including the parcel number, address and date of registration), your name and contact information (including telephone number and mailing address for which to send the refund) and a detailed explanation as to why the property was improperly registered to email@example.com. Please note that registered properties that no longer meet the requirements for registration are not eligible for a refund but will be deregistered from the system.
To maintain compliance with Ordinance 6169 and 6586, the person(s) directly responsible for the property in foreclosure (mortgagee) and property Maintenance Company must adhere to the following:
- Property inspection within 15 calendar days of filing a notice of default and election to sell.
- Property registration and designation of a property manager within 10 days of inspection.
- Posting of contact information for mortgagee and property manager of property.
- Properties must be kept free of nuisances of refuse, waste, and storage, and open structures must be secured.

Property Maintenance Companies
Identified property management or property preservation companies are responsible for the security, maintenance, and marking of the property. They must:
- Be empowered to comply with code enforcement orders issued by the City;
- Be empowered to conduct monthly inspections of the vacant foreclosed property until such time as the property is sold or lawfully reoccupied;
- Meet the requirements of Senate Bill 314 passed during the 2011 Legislative Session of the Nevada State Legislature.
