Foreclosed / Abandoned / Vacant Property Registration

On May 8, 2023, Cherry Hill Township Council passed Ordinance 2023-4 which requires creditors of residential and commercial properties to notify Cherry Hill Township within 10 days of filing an action to foreclose on a mortgage. The Ordinance further requires that the creditor submit a registration form and fee to the Cherry Hill Township Property Maintenance Department to register the property.  

To register a foreclosed/abandoned/vacant property, applicants can download the registration form (PDF), fill it out and mail it in with a check for the required fee, or submit the request online (SDL Login Required).
