Owning Property —Salyer Law

It is supposed to be one of the best things a person in our society can achieve. It means security, stability, safety and perhaps even profitability.

The real estate world is also full of potential pitfalls. In Illinois, pitfalls are better-deemed minefields when savvy and wealthy tax purchasers vigorously move to take title to property via a tax deed. It is not uncommon for tax purchasers to shame homeowners as “tax delinquents.” In many cases, the tax purchaser is the first contact with the homeowner. Homeowners may be confused or mistaken that the tax purchaser is advocating for the homeowner—when the tax purchaser clearly is not. Homeowners need and require unbiased legal advice when confronting a tax sale or tax deed on their home or property.

A financial misstep can quickly lead to complex tax issues, a tax sale, and worse, loss of your property to a tax deed. Any delay in retaining an attorney to assist you could be costly because the timetable for Illinois tax deed proceeding is critical. In one day, your legal defenses could be stripped away. That is where Salyer Law Offices comes in. We are a law firm dedicated to helping clients protect their property interests.
