Local tax deed absolute auction is being held. What is meant by "subject to all outstanding liens, if any"?
Depending on the state, a tax deed auction will wipe out most inferior liens like mortgages. However some liens are not erased and it is the responsibility of the buyer to pay those as well. Public records and title searches will tell you if there are any outstanding liens filed against the property.
Thank you @Peter M. is there a good reference that will tell you state to state what liens would be wiped out?
Not that I am aware of. Try looking up your states' tax laws. It could also vary by county or parish as well so you would need to check the county website for additional information.
Its county by county and some cities even vary from there. Easiest to give your location and find someone local to help.
