DeKalb County, GA Controversy

By
Real Estate Agent with Benefield Realty

DeKalb County, GA, commissioners voted on and passed a controversial "Foreclosure Registry Ordinance" whereby owners of foreclosed properties must pay a fee and register the properties with the county or face fines of up to $1000 per day.

Details of the new ordinance can be seen in an article by the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors by clicking here.

It is quite obvious there is a problem with the high number of foreclosures and unkept properties in DeKalb County. However, gouging all banks and investors because the county is to lazy to do a little title work and go after violators does not seem to be the best approach to me.

 

Have a great day!

Well, we're not sending Stokes to DC...  I don't know if that's better or worste because of who is representing district 4.  I don't understand half of what that the Dekalb County's Commission says.  When are they up for re-election?

Thanks for commenting Crystal. I'm not sure when the local elections are, but I'm thinking some changes are in order.
