Liens on property

Although real estate taxes are current on the date of the sale, it is highly recommended that any person interested in purchasing a property at a sheriff's sale should perform a title search to ensure there are no other existing liens or encumbrances that may follow the property (that you, as a buyer, will be responsible for). You can contact an attorney or local title company for further information.
