REALTORS® Pursuing Atlanta Code Enforcement Reform

The arrest of an Atlanta REALTOR® last month highlighted the need for reform in the methods employed by Atlanta Code Enforcement. In January the City's Department of Housing presented a "revamping" of Code Enforcement and explained proposed changes to the code enforcement system in the city of Atlanta. Along with the changes proposed, among them a transfer liens placed on a vacant or delinquent property to the Fulton county tax assessor allowing the City to eventually claim such properties as property of the City of Atlanta, the REALTORS® will pursue draft policy clarifying that a real estate professional should not be held legally liable for code violations of properties in which they hold no ownership interest.
