The Town of Oakville is proposing to implement a vacant property registry by-law. If you are the owner of a vacant property you will be required to register your property with the town under the proposed new by-law. Municipal enforcement staff will be proactively monitoring properties that appear vacant.

A draft by-law was presented to Council at the Planning and Development Council meeting on June 10.

Council directed staff to gather further public input and present a new proposed by-law in September.

Why a Vacant Property Registry By-law?

Vacant and unoccupied buildings that are not maintained can become infested with pests, attract trespassers, and have negative impacts on property values. Although the town’s Property Standards By-law addresses some of the issues that vacant properties present, other issues such as ensuring buildings are regularly inspected and have sufficient
insurance need to be addressed.
