I am very sorry to hear about this situation. Can you please clarify if you are a RENTER or this is your property?

Also, what COUNTY is this in, please?

Thank you. Can you please clarify if you are a RENTER to this property, or, this is your property?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The business is owned by the Corporation of which I am the President. I obtained the corporation on my own due to a divorce in 2006.

Thank you. I am not asking about the business, but the property. Do you or your business ALSO OWN THE PROPERTY?

Thank you.

It sounds like your property was auctioned off in a tax sale. You need to contact Wayne County Treasurer to get information on this and to confirm that this is a valid sale and not something that the party has simply made up. Their number is(###) ###-####

is there anyway I can pay what is needed and retrieve my property?

There may be, yes. See HERE and read through this carefully, please. Ergo, they may not have the power to evict you as a tenant yet because until/unless that redemption period passes, they do not have "full ownership" of the property.

Using counsel is recommended. Good luck.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars or failing to submit the rating does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
