Customer: We entered into a owner-financed purchase agreement a year and a half ago. Back taxes were due on the property and we gave the owner the monies to pay the taxes. Later we learned that the taxes had not been paid and the property tax deed was sold for $375K ($6K was the actual tax debt). The company who purchased the taxes then sold it to another company. They sent us a notice to vacate the property. We missed the court date, a default judgement was rendered. We asked for a continuance which was denied. Today we learned that a writ of possession has been filed. How do we stop this?
JA: OK. The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Real Estate Lawyer should know?
Customer: Yes, we understood that in the state of Georgia the owners had a year and one day from the day of the sale to redeem their property. The property was sold again before the redemption period was up. The very first time we heard anything about the company that purchased it (the second time) was when we got the eviction
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Real Estate Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.
