Residential Vacant Property Registry Program
The purpose of the City of Jennings Residential Vacant Registry Program is to help protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens by preventing blight, protecting property values and neighborhood integrity, avoiding the creation and maintenance of nuisance residential dwellings and buildings. A building or structure will be deemed vacant if the property is not legally or currently occupied. Vacant properties will be monitored for compliance with property maintenance and safety requirements.
Residential structures that are vacant or will be vacant for a period greater than 6 months are subject to City Ordinance 2478 Section PM 400-4. Property in violation of property maintenance and safety requirements will be subject to City Ordinance 2478 Section PM 400-4 “Vacant Residential Structure Fees”.
Upon initial registration, a one time $45 exterior inspection fee and $200 registration fee are due.
Maintaining your registration aids the city in monitoring vacancy and ensuring the health, safety, and quality of life of citizens is upheld.
