I am not sure if this in the right area, if it is not, I apolozie.
I own my house ourtright from an inheritence. At the time of death there were 2 trustees. Me and my aunt. My aunt was supposed to take care of the property taxes and did not and in the state of Indiana, you have 1 year to pay back taxes, needless to say, the house went for tax sale in oct 2011. I have renters in teh house now that want to buy. Noting is owed on the house mortgage wise, so can I sell the house and pay the tax lien at the same time? Or do the taxes need to be paid first before I can sell. Origniall taxes were about 2500.00 but since it went to auction, as of last week, I now owe 8000.00 with a 25.85 a day interst charge.
There is no way for me to borrow the money, I have exhausted all aspects of that, so my last glory would be to get the buyers to give me money for excrow and pay that, then sell the house, or can I just dedeuct the amount owen off the price of the house and pay them then close on the sale of the house?
