Adjudicated properties in New Orleans available for auction


The City of New Orleans will make more than 185 properties in the parish available for auction starting Tuesday. It’s part of the city’s push to reduce blight and bring vacant properties back into commerce.

When property taxes are not paid and become delinquent, the city holds tax sales for these properties. Unsold properties at a tax sale are adjudicated to the City of New Orleans. After three years, the city can offer the full title of these properties for sale at auction.

The properties were previously offered in tax sales with no bidders and have reached the three-year threshold. The properties will now be offered with full titles.

According to a release from the city, it has returned 770 properties to commerce and brought in over $14.5 million through its adjudicated property auction program. Additionally, 89 adjudicated properties were redeemed by homeowners returning $2.8 million in delinquent taxes to the City. The adjudicated properties that have failed to sell at a previous tax sale are now being offered to investors at a starting bid of the property’s closing costs. All properties come with full ownership and title insurance.

Here’s how the process works.Investors can nominate these properties for auction, along with any of the 900 properties currently listed, by placing an $850 deposit at

Once legal compliance work is completed, nominated properties will be scheduled for the next available auction, which takes place online the first Wednesday of each month.
