What is the Landbank?
The Landbank Authority is a cooperative effort by the major taxing authorities in Louisville Metro (city of Louisville, commonwealth of Kentucky and Jefferson County Public Schools). Its mission is to put vacant and abandoned properties back into productive use to improve our neighborhoods by increasing property values, stimulate the tax base, and reducing crime rates.
The Landbank has a number of buildings and vacant parcels available for purchase. Visit our Interactive Property Viewer, where you can find property information, online application forms, and all other property-related information. The first time you apply, you will need to create an account. This will allow you to apply for properties and to check the status of previous applications.
