Tax and foreclosure sales are very different. Tax sales usually have a redemption period after the sale when the owner, or in your case the owner's estate/heirs may redeem the property from the sale. With Foreclosure sales, that is not the case. The sale is followed by a deed to the buyer, and that is the end of it. There are no special rules for heirs or any post sale right of redemption in GA. I hope that this answer is helpful and that you will enter an accept with a positive rating.
