All vacant real property in foreclosure must be registered with the County and pay a $200.00 registration fee per property. Foreclosure Registry Ordinance No. 14-19 approved on February 25, 2014, went into effect on April 1, 2014. County Code was updated via Ordinance No. 18-43, approved on October 23, 2018.


The registry will require mortgagees and owners to provide official contact information for a person or entity who will be responsible for compliance with applicable codes regarding the maintenance of the property and the prevention of blight. The key elements of the registry ordinance are as follows:

  • Must register all vacant real properties in foreclosure.
  • Must complete an online registration application and pay a $200.00 fee per property.
  • Note: A separate registration is required for each parcel of vacant real property. If a single foreclosure covers four tracts, each with a separate tax parcel ID number, or if it covers a single tract that contains parcels with four separate tax parcel ID numbers, then four registrations (and four fees) are required. This includes single-family homes and commercial and vacant land.
  • The registry applies to both residential and commercial properties in the unincorporated areas of Manatee County.
