Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am new to tax foreclosure. How do I get started?
A: Tax foreclosure properties are sold at public auction. We have important information for bidders detailed at length on our website. We also recommend attending a live auction in a county near you. To see all of our upcoming auctions, please refer to our tax foreclosure sales page. If you still have lingering questions, always feel free to contact our office.
Q: Can I buy a property before it goes to public auction?
A: By law, The Kania Law Firm cannot sell you the property before it goes to auction. A property in foreclosure cannot be bought by paying off taxes and fees currently owing. The sale is what transfers ownership from one party to another.
Q: If I win the bid and tender my purchase funds, is the deed I receive clear of all liens?
A: A tax foreclosure action, if properly conducted, extinguishes all liens, unless otherwise excluded on the Sale Notice. However, our office does not normally certify title to buyers unless retained to do so by you, so you are encouraged to have your attorney review the title should you have any title concerns.
