The Hartford Land Bank identifies and acquires vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent and/or distressed properties in the City of Hartford, Connecticut, to steward their rehabilitation and return to productive community assets. Hartford Land Bank, Inc. is a non-profit corporation.
This page includes information about and links to our current and past inventory of properties and instructions on how to bid on a property if that property is currently available for sale.
You can also sign up for our newsletter to be alerted when properties become available for sale.
We do not sell properties that are not currently in our inventory. If a property is not listed as “Coming Soon” or “For Sale” on this page, we do not own that property and can’t sell it to you. You can read more about the purchasing process here and on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Important information regarding the Open House
and Bidding Process:
HLB properties that are listed “For Sale” may be visited by Potential Bidders ONLY during the scheduled Open Houses. Open House dates and times are posted on our social media (see links at the bottom of this page) and distributed via our newsletter.
- Due to HLB’s limited staff capacity and to ensure everyone’s time is being used effectively, if no Potential Bidders show up within the first 30 minutes of a scheduled Open House, the Open House is effectively canceled, and HLB staff will close up the property and depart. The Open House will not be rescheduled.
- All Open House attendees must complete the HLB Waiver prior to entering any HLB property: Click here to access the Waiver.
- All Open House attendees MUST provide their OWN:
- Notepad and pen.
- Measuring tape.
- Boots. Absolutely NO open-toed shoes, sandals, flip-flops, etc. Please see the Open House Waiver form for more safety information.
- Potential Bidders may visit HLB vacant lots at their convenience.
- Once a Potential Bidder has inspected a property, they can go online to complete the RFP. RFPs are linked on the individual property’s page.
Properties on state or national historic registers may qualify for rehab financing. Please contact the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) or the Hartford Preservation Alliance for information.
