Do you owe past-due taxes on your home? Is your commercial property subject to a tax lien? Are you an investor looking to purchase a distressed property?
If an owner has unpaid property taxes or special assessments on a property in Indiana, that property may be subject to a tax sale. Homeowners, developers and builders should know what to do if they have delinquent property taxes.
At The Law Offices of Brian Schellenberg, we help individuals and businesses save their properties from tax sales as well as provide guidance for purchasers of such properties. From our two offices in Noblesville and Greenwood, we provide skilled legal assistance throughout central Indiana.
Property Tax Sales
On an annual basis, most Indiana counties conduct tax sales of real estate with past-due taxes and special assessments. There are three types of tax sales — tax lien, tax deed and commissioner certificate. State laws dictate strict notification rules, deadlines and redemption periods. A mistake at any point along the way can lead to a failed redemption of the property by an owner or an uncompleted sale.
When a property is auctioned in a tax sale, the owner has a right to redeem his or her property. This redemption period can be as long as a year or as short as 90 to 120 days. If your property is subject to past-due taxes, contact a skilled real estate lawyer right away.
