​​DISPOSITION OF ADJUDICATED PROPERTIES

  • Background
    • The Development and Planning Department is the designated administrator of the Lafayette Consilidated Government disposition effort. For information, call (337) 291-8007.
    • In November of 2015, LCG adopted a process by which parties may apply for the disposition of these adjudicated properties.
    • An adjudicated property is a property which the owner has failed to pay property taxes and hasn’t been bid on at a tax title sale. The property at this point is adjudicated to local government; however, it is still in fact owned by the property owner.
    • State law allows local governments to facilitate the conveyance of these properties to a new owner. This transaction is a non-warranted one and Lafayette Consolidated Government holds no obligation to guarantee the clarity of the title.
    • Below you will find a link to a PDF of adjudicated properties in the parish. This map is updated quarterly so may contain inaccuracies. Please consult the Lafayette Parish Assessor’s website http://www.lafayetteassessor.com/ to check an individual property.
  • Applying for a sale or donation of an adjudicated property.
    • Anybody over the age of eighteen (18) who is not the/an owner of the property and who doesn’t own an adjudicated property anywhere in Lafayette Parish may apply.
    • Properties may be obtained by:
      • Sale by Public bid
      • Sale to a Qualified Adjoining Property Owner
      • Donation to a Qualified Non-Profit
      • Arm's Length Transfer
