TOWNSHIP OF TEANECK PASSES ORDINANCE RESPECTING ABANDONED PROPERTIES

 

 

September 29, 2016

 

Teaneck, NJ – On Tuesday, September 6, 2016, the Township Council passed an ordinance aimed at identifying abandoned properties in the Township of Teaneck. The ordinance will be enforced on properties that have not been legally occupied for a period of six months or at the discretion of the designated public officer.

Abandoned properties can negatively impact the appearance of our neighborhoods and may create an unsafe environment. Properties deemed abandoned will be required to be registered with the Township under the new ordinance. Additionally, the Township is in the process of hiring an employee, who will be responsible for conducting investigations to identify abandoned properties.

If you have an abandoned property in your area or own a property which meets the requirements of the ordinance, please contact the Township of Teaneck Health Department at (201) 837-1600 ext. 1500. For more information about the ordinance please click here.
