A: In situations where a property has unpaid taxes and goes up for a tax sale, it's crucial to follow the specific legal procedures to secure the deed and maintain ownership. If the property was sold without proper notice or due process, you should consult with an attorney experienced in real estate and property tax matters to assess your options and potentially address any legal issues regarding the sale of the property.
