City ordinance 48-H (Sec. 8-146) requires the registration of properties subject to foreclosure action within 10 days of filing foreclosure action or within 10 days after the mortgagee has notified the borrower of default and the mortgagee finds evidence that the property is vacant. The ordinance also requires properties subject to pending foreclosure action to be registered within 60 days.
The City of St. Petersburg collects the required registration information here. Registrations are valid for one calendar year and annual registration is required. Changes to registered properties should be reported with 10 days of the change. Properties that are vacant should be posted with the name and twenty-four hour contact telephone of the mortgagee’s local agent.
If you have received a case number from the Codes Compliance Assistance Department, you can pay your registration fee here. If you would prefer to send the check by mail, please send it to:
