Ohio Supreme Court Upholds Expedited Tax Foreclosures - County Land Banks to Acquire Properties


Learn how county land banks acquired unoccupied, tax delinquent properties free of charge.

Recently, the Ohio Supreme Court announced an opinion that is of importance for county elected officials and community and economic developers. The court chose to rebuff an effort to abolish expedited tax foreclosures, and instead upheld the practice in which county Boards of Revision (BOR) may choose to transfer unoccupied, tax delinquent properties to county land banks. This white paper reviews this decision and why expedited tax foreclosure remains good law today.
