Land Transfer Program

The Land Transfer program allows the City to resell certain tax-foreclosed properties (that its holds as trustee for the Dallas County taxing entities) and sell surplus properties so that affordable housing units or approved commercial uses may be developed on the properties. 

In order to be eligible to purchase two or more land transfer properties, a developer must have built one (1) or more homes in the past three (3) years and must have a development plan that is approved by the City. On a case-by-case basis, if a developer seeks to purchase only one property, the developer need not have built any homes in the past thee (3) years.
