If you are not the owner and plan to redeem a tax lien on behalf of the owner, a written description of your legal interest in the property will be required at time of payment.

You will not immediately lose your property if a tax lien is sold. For real property, the tax lien must be 3 years old before the purchaser of the lien can apply for a Treasurer’s Deed to the property. This gives you a minimum of 3 years to pay-off the tax lien. For mobile homes, the tax lien must be held for one year before the purchaser of the lien can apply for a Certificate of Ownership to the property.
After the tax lien sale has concluded, payments are considered tax lien redemptions and must be paid with cash or cleared funds.
