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.
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.
