Abandoned Property Registration

On Sept. 20, 2012 the City of Kenner adopted an Abandoned Property Registration Ordinance. The City of Kenner recognized a drastic rise in the number of abandoned and vacant properties and that vacant properties are in violation of multiple aspects of state law and local ordinances. Specifically, the presence of vacant and abandoned residences can lead to neighborhood decline, lower property values, and can create unattractive public nuisance.

This Ordinance requires owners of properties, banks, and other entities to notify the City of Kenner when a property is foreclosed upon, and to provide a local contact person to maintain the property, and to work with Code Enforcement to correct code violation issues.

The Ordinance goes into effect on November 15, 2012. The forms required for registration are available by calling the Department of Inspection and Code Enforcement, Office of Occupational License at 504-468-4062, Option 2.

Any questions regarding the new law should be directed to the Department of Inspection and Code Enforcement by calling 504-468-4062.  E-mail:
