How do I apply for the Lien Reduction Review Program?

The BDS Lien Reduction Review Program applies to all property owners who have had code enforcement liens placed against their properties by the Bureau of Development Services for code violations (building, housing, nuisance, zoning, sign, etc.) If you have lien(s) on a property with closed enforcement case(s) you may request a lien reduction review by completing one of the following:

Please do not submit multiple requests as this slows our response time. 

A lien reduction offer letter will be mailed after a request is received and the review is completed.  It can take several weeks for the process to be completed.
