Worth It? Maybe, Maybe Not

Aloha Laura, If you have the time and the money it's worth it. You have to be able to have that much cash tied up for a year. If the year passes and the former owner doesn't come forward to pay off the tax plus the 12% penalty, then you have to have the resources to hire an attorney to get the title quieted. This can take up to a year. If people come forward it can cost even more money. So about two years, maybe, to get insurable title. But if you pay, say, $60,000 in back taxes and end up with a $500,000 property, then it's worth it. BTW, if the former owner does come forward with the cash to bail himself out, you get 12% on your money the County has been holding.

Mahalo, Harry
