If the estate goes through probate then all of the creditors will need to be paid in order to make distributions. If his real property has a tax lien on it and it is because of unpaid taxes then yes paying these taxes would unencumber this property and allow you to take it without anything attached. So yes I would think they would leave you alone if you took care of this tax debt.
please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
Just checking back in, do you have any further questions?
