If I purchase a tax deed property and the previous owner has a mortgage. Am I held accountable for the mortgage or is the original owner? Does the mortgage company still hold claim on the property after the deed sale? Where can I find this information for myself?
FL is a TAX LIEN state and NOT a TAX DEED State.
Go to www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes
then on the menu go to Tiitle XIV, Tax & Finance
Then on the next menu go to Chap 197, Tax Collcetions, sales & Liens.
AND BINGO!!!you can educate yourself in how it is done in FLORIDA>
