City Re-Launches Interactive Map with Foreclosure Information

Thanks to the politicians in Los Angeles are making it easy for flippers and speculators have an quick source to make a buck.  Seriously is it the role of government to be a realtor?  L.A. thinks it is.  If a foreclosure map is needed, let the Realtors pay for it, not the taxpayers.  Another example of crony capitalism.

“The Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department plans to re-launch its map that tracks residences in foreclosure on July 1 with related information, general manager Rushmore Cervantes announced.

In 2010, the Los Angeles City Council enacted the Foreclosure Registry Program in response to the foreclosure crisis that started in 2008. It was intended to protect neighborhoods from blight caused by properties undergoing foreclosure, which often lack adequate maintenance and security, read a statement Friday from the department.

This isn’t about blight, it is about bucks.  Another reason to never vote for a tax increase or bond—government will abuse the money for the benefit of special interests and unions.

The Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department plans to re-launch its map that tracks residences in foreclosure on July 1 with related information, general manager Rushmore Cervantes announced.

In 2010, the Los Angeles City Council enacted the Foreclosure Registry Program in response to the foreclosure crisis that started in 2008. It was intended to protect neighborhoods from blight caused by properties undergoing foreclosure, which often lack adequate maintenance and security, read a statement Friday from the department.

The Foreclosure Registry Ordinance requires anyone involved with a residential property in foreclosure in the city to register the property with city housing officials within 30 days of the notice of default.

In 2017, the GeoRegistry System was developed to provide more information in order to address issues resulting from the foreclosure crisis. Recently, the department’s Compliance Division and Systems Division enhanced GeoRegistry to update the database and make it more accessible, the department said. The map has also been fitted with a portal to share information with the public and a tool to report issues with properties undergoing foreclosure.

People can access the map at hcidapp.lacity.org/geoforeclosure. HCIDLA’s Foreclosure Registry Unit hotline can be reached at 213-808-8858, or by email at foreclosurereg@lacity.org.
