Staffordsville, KY asked in Consumer Law, Real Estate Law and Collections for Kentucky

Q: My taxes were bought by a 3rd party. I've mailed payment in full, they've failed to pick it up for weeks. What do I do?

Debt collector requires money orders. Payment has been waiting for them at usps for 15 days. USPS supervisor confirms that my money orders are there. The debt collector's office has been notified and I have contacted them to inquire why it hasn't been picked up with no concrete answer.

(This debt is for taxes on a property for the year of purchase. The seller was responsible, but failed to pay. My mortgage broker has instructed me to pay the debt and recoup losses from the property seller.)

A: Not much you can do except wait for them to cash and release liens. Any other action on your part at this juncture would be too costly and premature.
