The Cuyahoga Land Bank offers several programs to purchase and renovate properties in our inventory. Our Deed-In-Escrow Program is our most popular program, allowing qualified buyers – whether owner-occupants or investors – to buy and renovate Cuyahoga Land Bank properties. The Land Bank’s Programs and Property Management team prepares professional renovation specifications (“the spec”). The buyer has approximately four months to complete renovations according to the spec after their offer is accepted. The deed to the property is held “in escrow” by the Land Bank until all renovations are complete and have passed a final inspection.
