Who buys these liens? Usually people who are looking to invest money. The interest rate starts at 18%. However, if there is more than one person interested in the same parcel, they will start bidding down the interest rate. Once the bidders bid down to 0%, it will go into a premium starting at multiples of $100.
What happens once a lien has been sold on a property? The person who purchased the lien will receive a legal document referred to as a "tax certificate" which must be recorded with the Monmouth County Clerk. The certificate must be held for 2 years from the date of sale. After 2 years they may start to foreclose on the property. The homeowner has the right to redeem the tax sale certificate any time prior to the final judgment being filed.
