Step 1 of 3
The CILBA Property Disposition Program is jointly administered by CILBA and its member
municipalities and counties. Properties offered through the CILBA Property Disposition Program may be owned by CILBA or its member municipality or county and will be conveyed by Quit Claim Deed. The buyer is responsible for inspecting the property and assumes all responsibility for any hazards, risks, or liabilities associated with the property.
Submitting an Application does not guarantee the property will be sold to the Applicant.
Fill out the Application completely. If you are unsure how to answer a question or need to collect additional information, you can save the Application as a draft and come back and finish at a later time. You will not be able to submit the application for review by CILBA until the
Application is complete and signed with any and all additional documentation submitted.
Please be aware that the information submitted will be verified. Submitting false or incomplete
information can be grounds for your application to be rejected and for your eligibility to participate in the CILBA Property Disposition Program to be revoked.
To be considered for a piece of property, each Applicant and co-Applicant:
• May not have any open violations of local building or property maintenance codes or delinquent municipal water bills or delinquent property taxes on any property you own.
• Not have lost a property to the County for nonpayment of taxes, nor had a foreclosure or personal bankruptcy within the past seven (7) years.
• If applying for a side lot, applicant and co-Applicant must be the owner of a property that shares a common lot line with the subject property.
Once we receive a completed Application, our staff will review the Application to verify the Application is complete and meets minimum requirements. Applications that are approved by CILBA are given Conditional Approval, subject to Final Approval by the CILBA Member municipality or county with jurisdiction over the Property (“Member”). CILBA will strive to review and process all applications within five (5) business days.
CILBA will forward the Application to the Member with Conditional Approved. The Member will have not more than 30 days to act on the recommendation and either reject the Application or grant Final Approval. Any Application that is not acted on by the Member within 30 days is considered Rejected.
CILBA will notify the Applicant of the CILBA and Member response. If Final Approval is granted, CILBA will contact the Applicant to come to the CILBA office to make payment via a certified check, sign closing documents, and receive the Quit Claim Deed. The Applicant will have 30 days from the date of Final Notification to complete the closing and accept deed to the property.
