Baltimore Rowhomes

Who is One House?

Our mission at One House is to transform vacant properties using receivership and other resources to improve Baltimore neighborhoods. Under the authority of the Baltimore City Building Code, we act as an independent agent of the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City to transfer vacant, nuisance properties to qualified buyers who will perform renovations and obtain a use and occupancy permit. In addition to qualifying bidders, our work includes coordinating property settlements, working with various City agencies to clear title, and distributing proceeds to lien holders and owners. We file all necessary court documents and respond to any legal actions that may arise. Throughout this process, we engage with various stakeholders and provide technical assistance when necessary.
