If the house is to be seized by Inland Revenue for payment of tax, then they would go through a process of placing a charging order on the title, and then of selling the property with a writ of sale. This is a process where the sale will be advertised in the paper. They will not generally enter into a private sale, but place the property on the market

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
