Act 152-2016 County Demolition Fund

County Demolition Fund Reporting

Act 152-2016 amends Act 87-1982, the Recorder of Deeds Fee Law, and allows the governing body of any county to adopt a resolution or an ordinance that authorizes the recorder of deeds to charge and collect an additional fee not to exceed $15 for each deed and mortgage recorded. The fee must be deposited in a county demolition fund and used exclusively for the demolition of blighted property in the county. The legislation shall expire 10 years from its effective date, January 4, 2017.

Initial Report Instructions

Within 90 days of imposing the fee, a county must file an initial report with the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) which includes plans on how the fund resources are going to be spent.
