Rights of Redemption

Holders of Certificates of Sale and Plaintiffs in Actions to Foreclose Rights of Redemption

The land you purchased at tax sale may be redeemed by the property owner if certain conditions are met. To learn more about the conditions, please contact your attorney. Maryland law provides that you are entitled to be reimbursed for certain expenses if the property you purchase is redeemed.

These expenses must have been incurred in an action or in preparation of an action to foreclose the rights of redemption. These expenses include:

  • Fee for recording Certificate of Sale
  • Publication cost
  • Service of process by publication cost
  • Reasonable fee for necessary title examination
  • Taxes, together with interest, and penalties arising after the tax sale
