Tax Lien Foreclosures - Sponsored by the Rhode Island Bar Association Foreclosure Prevention Project
Additional Information:
Cities, towns, fire districts, water districts, and sewer authorities all need tax money to provide their essential services. When a property owner fails to pay in a timely fashion, the law allows the municipal authority to sell the tax lien.

This seminar will seek to address the issues that arise from tax lien sales and foreclosures, to prepare practitioners to defend against the foreclosure on behalf of the homeowner. The speakers anticipate covering the following issues: - Requirements for notifying the owner of the sale - How the Madeline Walker Act works (or not) - The procedures and timeline of a foreclosure case - Requirements for notifying the owner of the foreclosure - Remedies for failure to respond timely to the case - Reviewing redemption costs for what is "reasonable" - Interplay with redemption rights in bankruptcy court - Past constitutional challenges and what issues remain

This seminar is offered FREE to all attorneys who are members of the VLP or LRS Pro Bono Panel for the Elderly and to those who agree to join the VLP or Elderly program prior to attending. In order to complete the registration process, you must accept a foreclosure prevention case in 2018.
