Setting Aside a Completed Tax Sale
Once a tax sale has been completed, typically either you manage to redeem the home, as described in the next section, or you lose the home. A third possibility is to find grounds to go to court to set aside the completed tax sale. The grounds to do this are very limited and to even try, you will need a lawyer to investigate why the sale was illegal. Was notice improper? Was the tax sale conducted improperly? Were the taxes no longer due? Was there fraud? Did the purchaser have the authority to purchase? Did the taxing authority mislead the homeowner? Typically, low sale price is not grounds to set the tax sale aside.
