ADJUDICATED PROPERTY DISPOSITION

Contact: (337) 291-8007

The Development and Planning Department is the designated administrator of the Lafayette Consolidated Government disposition effort. 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 becomes 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 results in a non-warranty title and Lafayette Consolidated Government holds no obligation to guarantee the clarity of the title. Please consult the Lafayette Parish Assessor’s website, https://www.lafayetteassessor.com/,  to check an individual property or see the interactive map listed below.

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
