Tax Sale Redemption Lawyers For Homeowners: 800-335-9613
The prospect of losing your home in a tax sale is enough to keep anyone awake at night. As a homeowner, you should know that you may still have the right to reclaim your property from the government, though time may be very limited. At Crislip, Philip & Royal, our real estate lawyers help homeowners like you take on a tax sale and potentially avoid the devastation of losing your home due to allegedly unpaid taxes.
How Can I Redeem My Property After A Tax Sale?
Redeeming your home from a tax sale is a complex process, and the time limit you have to make the redemption depends on several factors. However, the time you have to respond to the tax sale order ranges from as long as one year to as briefly as 30 days. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can get to work finding a way for you to possibly keep your home.
To redeem your property, you must first file a Motion to Redeem before the time limit lapses. Then you must pay for the following:
- All delinquent property taxes
- 12% interest on the delinquent taxes, to be paid to the purchaser
- The purchaser’s court costs
- Other reasonable expenses the purchaser incurred in the maintenance of the property
Also, once you have successfully redeemed the property, you will have to pay taxes and costs associated with recording the redemption order at the county registrar’s office.
