Vacant & Abandoned Properties

Residents of the 41st Ward are encouraged to contact the ward office regarding abandoned or vacant properties. These properties blight our neighborhoods and could pose potential serious public health and safety concerns. Residents can use the City’s  Vacant Buildings website to find out more about the rules governing vacant properties or to look into a specific vacant property.

In some instances, property owners may receive a citation for Municipal Code Violations from the Department of Buildings, Chicago Police Department and/or Streets and Sanitation.
