St. Louis City Land Tax Sale Confirmation
The St. Louis City land tax sale confirmation process is completely different from the sale process in other Missouri counties. First, the Sheriff’s Office, not the collector of revenue, holds and manages the city tax sales. Second, technically there is no redemption. Third, a court confirmation hearing is required, which includes filing a motion, an appraisal and a court hearing, including expert testimony. If the judge confirms the sale, then a sheriff’s deed will be issued to the tax sale purchaser.
Quiet Title After A Tax Sale
Once you have the collector’s deed or sheriff’s deed, you can begin the quiet title action, which is a lawsuit required by most title companies before they will insure a transaction on a property that has been purchased at a tax sale for delinquent real estate taxes.
Tax Sale Redemption Lawyer
If you are an owner, lender or other lien holder who has lost a property at a tax sale, there may be a way to redeem the property. First, depending on the number of years the real estate taxes are delinquent, there may be a right of redemption. Second, many tax sale purchasers fail to follow the law exactly, which may allow the sale to be invalidated and property to be redeemed.
