How to Register
To Remove a property from the Foreclosure Registry
- In the event a property has been sold or a change in title has occurred, the mortgagee must provide the new ownership information by submitting proof of sale or written notification to the City of Las Vegas, Code Enforcement Division. Failure to provide contact information for new ownership will result in responsibility remaining with the current owner/mortgagee until Clark County Records reflect new ownership information.
