Tax certificate property
I am in the process of buying a tax certificate from a real estate company in Birmingham AL. I am trying to find out how I can legally take possession of the property. There is currently someone living in the house and I'm assuming it is the current owner. I am still waiting for the certificate to come in it should be here in a few weeks. So I am trying to get all the information I can so I know what to do next.
so my questions are...
1. How do I go about taking possession of the property
2. Am I legally able to rent the property out after taking possession
3. After the 3yr time period and I receive the tax deed is it still possible to have a redemption be viled against the property
