During the late 1990’s, the LBA
received several conveyances of Sheriff and Marshall Deed
properties from the City of Atlanta (“COA”) and Fulton County.
The aggregate number of these conveyances totaled over 500
properties. The COA and Fulton County had definitive interests
in these properties but they were dormant and not in productive
use. They conveyed these properties to the LBA so that
developers, CDC’s or not-for-profit entities that customarily
worked with the LBA would have access to these properties for
potential development. The COA and Fulton County felt that
with the number of developers working with the LBA to create
affordable housing, that these properties could be developed
along with other projects in the neighborhoods to return them to
productive use. The LBA has conveyed over 350 of these
properties to date. Developers have used these properties for
various types of projects which include greenspace, single
family housing, multi-family housing and some commercial use.
Note that interested parties must meet minimum qualifications in
order to be eligible to receive these properties.

LBA does not acknowledge having clear title to any of these
properties. Some due diligence will need to be done as to
