Conerned, Home Owner in Jamestown, NY

In NY State, what happens if a property does not sell at a tax foreclosure auction? Who is responsible for the property?

Asked by Conerned, Jamestown, NY Thu Jan 5, 2012

I am looking for "real" laws or cases that have been settled on this topic. In NY State, what happens if a property does not sell at a tax foreclosure auction? Who is responsible for the property after the sale? If a piece of the building falls and injures my child, who is to blame? Who is responsible to take care of the property before anything bad happens?

Generally it is whoever owns the property. However your best bet is go directly to an attorney that handles this type of case and let them do their thing.

If you want "real" laws, contact an Attorney. This is a site for real estate. Sellers, buyers , agents and brokers use it.

Since it's stated that you are "looking for "real" laws or cases that have been settled on this topic", and since it appears an injury occured, it's really in your best interest to consult with an attorney; he/she can best advise as to all related legalities/options.
