Dumping and flipping redundant churches
The property is dumped and flipped to unsuspecting not-for-profits or other owners at a low price. The new owners cannot support the cost of repairs/maintenance and the property deteriorates. This often adds to the blight in already depressed neighborhoods. The magic is that the Diocese is absolved from responsibility for these structures. Rather than the Bishop ending up in court for code violations, the not-for-profit does.
