Hope sosmeone can help. I sold a piece of property 3 years ago to the elks lodge. I gave them a quit claim deed and they gave me money. Well 3 years later and they have never filed the deed or paid the taxes. And the county tax department has written me a letter stating that my name will appear in the paper for unpaid taxes and if I do not pay them they will forclose on me. My question is if I pay the taxes can I retain the deed to the property since they have never filed the deed? And if I choose to do this what can they do to me? I do not want my name in the paper saying I don't pay my taxes. Im a very upstanding citizen and never cause problems.
I am located in the state of OHIO
