Difference between Tax Certificate and Tax Lien in Al

Sorry @Darryl Patterson , those two simple questions would take up over an hour to explain. In a nutshell, the tax certificate grants the investor certain rights, including that of possession and sometimes ability to make improvements. The tax lien is like the rest of the US--you  buy a lien only, bidding down the redemption interest rate against other bidders. If the own does not redeem, you foreclose you lien. The consequences of those two approaches is what takes up an hour to explain.
