Q: how can i stop a foreclose on my deceased grandfathers home. My sister is Representative of the estate but she owe taxes
Can I pay the taxes or request a hearing to save the estate
A: If it is a tax foreclosure, the simplest way to save the home is to pay the balance of the taxes due. I would need more information regarding the timing of the foreclosure to provide more detailed advice.
1. Pay the taxes.
2. She should be able to go to county to get a on a payment plan while the estate is being probated. The county will not forgo any payment. They will want a portion of the taxes paid.
Hope this helps. See more about tax foreclosure by going to www.provenresource.com
