Navigating the Waters of the Sheriff Sale: Buyer Beware

Purchasing a property through tax lien sheriff sale can be problematic. Courts recognize Equitable Right of Redemption, where the previous owner may file to redeem the property "at any time within nine months from the date the acknowledgement of the sheriff's deed" -- except when they don't. Moreover a bankruptcy filing by the former owner can stop ejectment proceedings.
