Mr. White is committed to applying his years of experience and legal skills to help you navigate through the legal process as smoothly as possible.
He will keep you fully informed on the legal process, which will be long and drawn out. When investors purchase homes at a tax sale, they generally have to put 10 percent down plus the balance owed from the back taxes. Even after the purchase is made, the homeowner has a year to try and recover his or her home by paying back the money he or she owes. This is known as right of redemption. Attorney Leo White is available to address all of your concerns and will be by your side to make the process as smooth as possible for you. He is also highly effective at negotiating for any liens to be reduced to a fair price.
