Can I Sell My House If I Owe Property Taxes in Wilmington, NC
Owe Property Taxes – Can you Sell?
If you owe property taxes, they will typically need to be paid either by the seller or by the buyer during the closing. If the amount of back property taxes is small, this likely is not a big deal to either party. However, if there are expensive back taxes owed, a seller may not have the funds to afford to pay the property taxes, and similarly the buyer may not be in a position to afford to pay the property taxes….further the cost of the back taxes, when combined with the purchase price and any repairs needed, may create an overall sales amount that is greater than the fair market value.
When a seller does not pay property taxes over several years, the local county may decide to perform a tax foreclosure. In this instance, the seller is served papers indicating the foreclosure is commencing. If the taxes are not then paid, the county moves forward with selling the home at the courthouse in order to pay off the back taxes.
