What is the foreclosure process and will the County handle the foreclosure process for a fee?

You may begin the foreclosure proceedings three years from the date of the tax lien sale. It is recommended that you seek an attorney. The attorney will give you the cost and time involved. The Treasurer's Office no longer facilitates the forclosure process. Upon submission of a judgement from Superior Court, the County Treasurer will issue a Treasurer's Deed.
