The mission of the Knox County Land Bank is to strengthen neighborhoods and preserve property values through a transparent and fair process. We do this by turning vacant, abandoned and tax delinquent properties into assets that enhance the quality of life and economy in Knox County by creating green space, community property, and safe, clean, and affordable housing.

On this page you can browse available properties, contact us to acquire or dispose of unwanted property, submit an application to be prequalified contractor, and learn more about how the Land Bank operates. We hope you take some time to consult the resources and learn more about this unique community organization.
