Conyers moves ahead with vacant property risk abatement plans


Conyers, GA: The only city in Rockdale County is going ahead with plans for vacant property registration, in order to address the many properties posing a risk to safety and potentially decreasing surrounding property values by remaining vacant.


The city has defined a “vacant property” as one that has been completely non-inhabited, with no utilities on, for at least 60 days. All structures – commercial, industrial, and residential – are subject to evaluation from past information on hand and future information gathered to establish vacancy to set in motion the registration requirements.


Notified owners must register current contact information with the city, as well as pay a $100 fee. Non-compliance with the new code for structures falling under the description set forth for “vacant” can be subject to fines up to $1,000 and include up to six months of jail time, depending on circumstances.


Ascent combines focused research and supplementary technology, with centralized operations oversight, to create innovative solutions that manage code compliance, vacant property registration ordinances, property preservation, and other vendor management services across the entire United States.
