Per the City of Camden ordinance MC-4818, all property owners must register their vacant property(ies) and pay the fee of $500.00 per property, per year (fees will escalate annually) for as long as the property remains vacant.

Contact our Vacant Property Registration Unit to register/deregister your vacant property or if you have any questions regarding VPR’s at .

The City of Camden is also in partnership with Prochamps who is authorized to administer all foreclosed vacant properties.


The City of Camden is currently in the process of obtaining a new provider to be the  authorized administrator of all foreclosed vacant properties. In the meantime, we have currently suspended the program as we actively look to obtain a new vender.

If you have any questions pertaining to foreclosed vacant properties, please reach out to our VPR-Unit at

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
