How to purchase City Owned Property:
If you are interested in acquiring city-owned property, in order to rehabilitate it, we require that you FOIL request any open code violations with the City Clerk and make an appointment with a code enforcement officer to go through the property before you submit an application, as property is sold on an "as is" basis.
Once you have seen the property, you may submit an application to our Property Disposition Coordinator, Robin Waldron. When the City is prepared to sell the property, you will be required to pay a non-refundable application fee of $100. You must also submit copies of your financial statements which must show adequate funds to cover the amount you are bidding on the property and the amount of estimated repairs listed in your application.
If your application is approved by the Property Disposition committee, it will then be forwarded to the Common Council of the City of Amsterdam for deliberation and final approval.
