So You Want an Abandoned House in Philly?

Here's a guide.

But don't expect the process to be rational...

For whatever reason, the City has established a bureauocracy that requires over $50,000 simply to undergo the process of condemnation (for an abandoned property appraised at $5,000.) In other words, they must pay about 10 times the property's value in order for it to be considered condemned. Moreover, they don't guarantee ownership of the propery after this process.
