Hi, its John Lane from TaxSaleLists.com…if you do know about taxsalelists.com we are the website that has provided tax sale lists, over 10,000 a year, for the past eleven year and also provide the only tax sale training done by somebody who has been a major buyer of tax liens (over 77,000 tax sale properties acquired over the past 20 years).
Today I want to answer a question we get from a lot of people. Do I have to Evict A Tenant?
Most people think if they get the property that they will have to evict the tenant and they are nervous about having to do that.
Again, this is not something you have to worry about as this process is taken care of the vast majority of cases by the taxing jurisdiction.
You are not responsible for the eviction of the tenant. Keep in mind by the time the redemption period is over and you can get title to the property the residents of the property have received numerous notices telling them to vacate if the lien has not been paid.
In our experience, the residents (either previous owners or renters) have vacated the property long before we get title to it.
What if they don’t leave? This rarely, in our experience, has occurred, but if it does it still is not a problem as the Sheriff will evict the residents before you take possession of the property.
In most cases this is done at no cost to you.
To sum it all up.
The county has sent many notices to the residents of the property that they have to vacate if the lien has not been paid.
The residents in the vast majority of cases will have vacated before you get the property.
If it turns out they have not vacated, the Sheriff will evict the tenant…it is not your job to evict anybody.
