My situation is this i found four properties in my area all of which are behind in taxes for three years. 2 homes are owned by one man and the other two are owned by another man that was a coincidence. I want to pay the taxes and get a lien on all four of these homes. what are my possibilities of actually owning all 4 of these houses? What interest rate should i bid on the taxes to insure i get the tax certificate and lastly i need to know every risk i'm going to take with getting a tax lien on someones house and benefits? please help i'm on a time crunch to decide.
