Deceased property owner

1 Reply

Hello! Just starting out and have a question about a property-

The owner has been dead for 4 years. Looked into it, he had no wife or children. It looks like it was an investment property for him then he got sick and died. I looked on the tax assessor's website and it still says in his name. I don't see where there is a tax lien. What happens to these types of properties???

Thanks!

They go into probate unless they were accounted for, just because the person has no immediate family doesn't mean that someone didn't inherit it, someone is likely paying the property taxes, even if it is the mortgage company, your next step is to find out who that is.
