Application Review Process

All applications are reviewed monthly by the CIC Property Review Committee.  To be included in a monthly review, your application must be received no later than the 1st of the month.  You will receive a response once your application has been reviewed and should have a decision regarding its approval or denial within 30-45 days.  Once the application has been reviewed, the next steps are:

SINGLE-FAMILY HOME DEVELOPMENT:

If your application is approved, you will receive a contract for the purchase and redevelopment of the property and a target closing date.  Terms regarding price and development time frames will be included in this contract. If you want to schedule a time to view the interior of a property, this will take place after application approval, but before the closing of the property.

MULTI-UNIT, MULTI-PROPERTY, AND COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT:

If your application is accepted, you will be contacted to schedule a date for a live pitch of your development project to the CIC Property Review Committee.

POST-CLOSING PROCEDURES

All purchasers are required to keep the St. Bernard CIC up-to-date on the progress of any improvements ore development.  Upon request, the purchasers may be required to give a narrative updates and provide photos of any progress.  Upon completion of the development, the purchaser must provide notice to the CIC and provide photos.

Please note: Filling out an application does not obligate you to purchase the property, nor does it entitle you to purchase the property.  Please complete the application to the best of your ability with the information that you have.  Information about the particular property that you may be interested in may be found on the Hamilton County Auditors Website. http://hamiltoncountyauditor.org
