A: Rights of redemption usually refers to a municipal tax sale. The property may have been sold at tax sale and if so then you have a limited period of time to redeem it, by paying off the debt to the person who bought it at tax sale. There are deadlines stated in the notices that you receive. If you miss them then you might lose the property completely.
