They have 3 years to redeem the property. They do so at the Tax Collector's office. Essentially they will need to pay the amount of the tax + 5% penalty + 1% per month in interest.

Here is a list of answers that should answer all their questions:

They have not lost the property, but they should not wait until the last minute to redeem it.

Please kindly rate the question so I may be credited. Thank you. You can still ask follow-up questions.

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.
