DeKalb County Foreclosure Registry

Effective July 1, 2012, the registration fee is $100 per registration.

The DeKalb County Foreclosure Registry was established as a means to protect neighborhoods from becoming blighted through the lack of adequate maintenance and security as a result of properties that are foreclosed or where ownership has been transferred after foreclosure.

Creditors or mortgagees who foreclose on a property are required by law to register the property with DeKalb County and pay a fee of $100 or face fines up to $1000.  Creditors or mortgagees must designate a local property agent located within the State of Georgia to ensure security and maintenance of the property in compliance with County Code.

The local property agent must be designated and listed on the registration form.  Failure to do so will be a violation of the ordinance and will be subject to a penalty of up to $1000.

The local property agent must have the authority to ensure security and maintenance of the property; comply with code enforcement orders issued by the County; provide a trespass authorization upon request of an enforcement officer; conduct inspections of the property; accept rental payments from tenants, if no management company is otherwise employed; and serve as an agent authorized to receive code enforcement citations and notice pertaining to any court proceeding or administrative enforcement.

For additional information, call (404) 371-6379 or e-mail foreclosureregistry@dekalbcountyga.gov.
