What happens at a delinquent tax sale?
During any tax sale, the most recent years unpaid tax bills are eligible to be sold to any registered 3rd party purchasers. The purchasers then place a lien on the properties certificate of delinquency that is on file with the clerk’s office.
What does it mean when a 3rd party purchaser buys any delinquent tax bill?
When any tax bill gets sold, the purchaser is not awarded ownership of the property. A lien is placed on the property listed on the tax bill by the 3rd party purchaser. In order to get this lien released you need to contact the purchaser and make arrangements with them to pay off the lien.
