Lot Linker Search Tool

Lot Links is the City of Dayton program that uses a state provision for Real Estate Acquisition Process, commonly referred to as "REAP," to take title to tax delinquent abandoned properties in the City of Dayton. The City can then sell those properties to qualified buyers.

This tool streamlines your search by showing *only those properties that meet the first four eligibility criteria for the Lot Links program. Learn about the Lot Links program before proceeding with this tool.
