Title: Condemned home in litigation
Post by: Flyingcloud on January 22, 2019, 07:29:17 pm
I am interested in buying a home that was recently condemned. After speaking to a former tenant I am told the owner of the property passed away 10 years ago  Previously the owner had been involved in an accident resulting in another man's injury, and that the injured man was currently sueing the owner for the property. (Or his inheritors) The house was recently condemned after multiple attempts to reach the property owners. What options are there for negotiating sale of the home? Would I need to contact the person suing for the property or the inheritors? Is there any way to find out who inherited the home? The assessors office still lists the owner as the deceased man.

Thanks for any guidance

Sounds fishy. 

The tax bill is being sent somewhere.  Someone is paying it.  Mail/visit the address where the tax bill is being sent, and talk to whomever is getting the tax bill.

Who is the renter paying rent to?
