It is expected that we will continue to see an increase in the amount of parcels offered at tax sale. This increase appears to be the trend throughout the 92 counties in Indiana and can naturally be expected to result in a significant increase in the amount of legal and business issues involving tax sales.
This seminar is designed to assist attorneys, title insurance agents, real estate brokers, and others in protecting against tax sale pitfalls. This seminar will focus on the tax sale as it has been impacted by recent changes to the tax sale statutes, case law and world events. The seminar will provide valuable information to assist you to avoid running afoul of the changes as you proceed through the tax sale process. We will discuss each step of the tax sale including: preparing for and attending the tax sale, obtaining the tax sale certificate, providing notice, receiving a valid tax deed, quieting title to the purchased property, and obtaining title insurance.
This course is taught by faculty who has dealt extensively with the Indiana Tax Sale and who have both practical and legal experience in dealing with issues that arise in this area.
