When a residential property in Bristol has been condemned upon inspection by a governmental agency, such as the Health Department or Building Department, the residents residing lawfully in the property may be eligible for cash assistance. The assistance covers only the cost of the differential between the rent or mortgage that was being paid and the new rent. The new residence must meet building and health codes and pass an inspection. An application for assistance is to be completed at the Community Services office. There is a time limit and a financial cap on the assistance.
According to state mandate, the City of Bristol is to store the household goods left behind after the eviction occurs. A fee is charged daily for the storage of the items. Items that are not claimed by the evicted person within 15 days may be sold by the city at a public auction to recover any costs the city may have incurred.
