St. Louis Delinquent Real Estate Tax Sale Attorney

Please read this DISCLAIMER before reading below.

You should consider hiring a St. Louis delinquent real estate tax sale attorney before purchasing a property at a land tax sale in any Missouri County, especially in St. Louis City or St. Louis County. In most counties, at least once a year, the collector of revenue holds a tax sale of real estate where the real estate taxes are delinquent. Purchasing a property at a delinquent tax sale can be a great investment. However, the purchaser must be very careful to following the law exactly to ensure they cannot lose their investment. Adding further confusion to this process is how different the law can be if you are purchasing a property at a delinquent real estate tax sale in St. Louis City, which is a judicial process, versus purchasing a property at a delinquent land tax sale in St. Louis County or another Missouri county. One requires notices and affidavits meeting certain requirements, while the other requires a court motion, likely filed by a tax sale attorney. In addition, the purchaser's right to the property and the investment strategy vary drastically depending on the number of years the taxes are delinquent. Chapter 141 of the Missouri Revised Statutes covers the law regarding delinquent real estate taxes while Quiet Title Action of the Missouri Revised Statutes covers much of what must be done to confirm a purchaser's interest in a County tax sale.

Further, even if you follow all of the law perfectly most title insurance companies will require a Quiet Title Action before they will insure a transaction on a property that has been purchased at a land tax sale for delinquent real estate taxes.
