COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) voted in favor of House Bill 134, legislation that seeks to expedite the foreclosure process and transfer of unoccupied parcels, and to make other changes relative to residential foreclosure actions.
Rep. Anielski said, “House Bill 134 streamlines the foreclosure process, thus making communities safer of these vacant properties.  As a former mayor, I understand the issues that surround these properties and am proud to support a measure to improve the safety for local constituents.”
The bill provides potential changes to summary foreclosure actions to vacant and abandoned properties. House Bill 134 accomplishes this through creating a clear definition for vacant and abandoned properties, making the classification process for these properties easier. The legislation also modifies judicial procedures to expedite the public sale of vacant or abandoned property. Additionally, HB 134 establishes that the final confirmation of sale serves as the transfer of title, which alleviates pressure on sheriffs to produce a deed in a reasonable amount of time.
The changes are meant to help expedite the foreclosure process and restore Ohio’s communities that suffer from an influx of vacant or abandoned properties, especially in metropolitan areas. Leaving houses unoccupied increases crime and the likelihood of other homes falling into disrepair, resulting in reduced value to all neighboring houses. HB 134 would make it easier to sell these parcels quickly and begin the process of rehabilitating and revitalizing these areas.
HB 134 now moves to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
