I am a Florida renter of 7 years and my neighbor who ‘owned’ her home next to me died four months ago. I called the police for a welfare check at the end of July and never heard anything back. Turns out she had already died back in May.
So now the county just contracted a mowing company to mow her overgrown yard.. Now I’m wondering what will happen to the house. It would be a beautiful little home for my wife and I and I was wondering if there was any kind of ‘insider’ way of going about purchasing it. I would be a first time homebuyer.
I dont know the true status of the payments of the home but I know that she didn’t have any family members and was frankly a very rude woman. I imagine that her accounts are now four months behind as she didn’t have family to take over those affairs. Does anyone here know what the logical next steps are? I heard something from a family member about paying the property taxes on it but Im so clueless about this stuff. This maybe isn’t even the correct sub for this question?
Any help would be massively appreciated and could potentially change my family’s life.
