It is for water drainage or something along those lines. They will not allow me to remove my name because I am still listed as the current owner.
No, it's from the sewer district.
There is no way to force the new owner to record the deed, however, there may be a way to get your name off of the bill. I believe I worked with you on Illinois question as well. Are they aware that the property foreclosed and there is a new owner?
Yes, but they have said that they can't do anything while the property is still legally in my name.
