DILAPIDATED AND ABANDONED BUILDINGS

One in every fourteen homes in West Virginia have been classified as abandoned or dilapidated. This session will explore how attorneys and local governments may address neglected properties including registration programs, enforcement of ordinances and more.

Communities are hesitant to address dilapidated buildings due to fear of legal barriers. Many communities have identified dilapidated and abandoned buildings as the number one issue of concern in their community. The reasons this issue is so pressing for communities include its relation to economic development opportunities, reducing crime, increasing property values and improving quality of life. Communities have created committees, programs and even adopted dilapidated building ordinances to fight the prominence of neglected buildings. However, enforcement under these programs has been weak given fear of taking legal action.
