How can I acquire a property the Township Owns? 

  • The township does not have a land dispensation policy in place currently.
  • The township does not have a comprehensive inventory of township owned land available for acquisitions.
  • The Development Department is working on this effort, but it will likely be a while before we can effectively transfer properties.  

There are three major components that will play a factor in this policy:

  • The strategies of the soon to be adopted Land Use and Development Plan
  • Redevelopment and reinvestment goals/plans for specific neighborhoods and corridors
  • Classification of individual township owned properties based on plans

You may submit your name, address, email, phone number and the property you are interested in acquiring. We will contact you if it becomes available.

How can I acquire a vacant or abandoned Property? 

For all properties on nuisance lists, demo lists, etc. The township does not have control of these. If you are interested in one of these properties, you should review the Montgomery County Treasures depositor foreclosure program. 

This program allows an interested party to pay $2000 to start a tax foreclosure process and send a property to Sheriff’s sale. There is a disclosure that this process may take as long as 2 years and is not guaranteed. If a depositor is not the winning bidder at the auction, their $2000 is refunded.
