I hope this is not too redundant a question. There is an abandoned home in my neighborhood. It has been abandoned now for over 3 Ĺ years. The owner seems to have just disappeared. A friend did some title search and found that the owner is a single man and no transfers of any kind. I have tried to find the owner but have not been able to. The home is an eye sore and some kids used it as a hangout so the city has come by and boarded the property and once every 3 months sends a clean up crew. The property now has 23k in unpaid taxes and city liens for the clean up. I have been told that if the property is abandoned (truly abandoned), a blight on the community, owner can not be found and delinquent property taxes that I can acquire title by paying the taxes and basically move in. This sounded to me a little off so that is why Iím posting.
Thanks in advance
