Re: Adverse Possession and Payment of Property Taxes
Permissive use ended in 2005, but the earliest that can be shown (in writing) is 2006 and employment was not terminated.
does the person claiming AP have a receipt showing they paid the property taxes? If not, they were not paying the property taxes. They were no more paying the taxes than a tenant in a house is paying the taxes. Of course some of the money they pay towards living there is used to pay the taxes but that does not mean they were paying the taxes. But beyond that, as long as the money was being withheld in exchange for them being allowed to live there, there is no AP.
Can a written agreement between the owner of the property and a resident stating earnings from working would be allocated towards taxes on the property as a condition to live there be enough to prove the resident paid the taxes on the property?
You're kidding, right? If they file a quiet title suit, the auction may be suspended due to the pending legal action but other than that, there is no reason to and no ability to halt the auction.
Who do they notify to stop the auction?
they need to file a suit against the owner at the moment
What needs to be done if resident is claiming adverse possession?
