A friend of mine has a tax lien on their property for failure to pay taxes on it. I was out of town when it went to auction or I would have bid on it. My friend no longer wants to property and they have a major collateral loan on it. Due to all the repairs on the property, I doubt they would want it if they could have see inside of it. I only want it because I know what it needs and I have a couple friends who would be willing to help. Can I buy the lien from the individual who picked it up? Is that possible?
