Understanding Tax Lien Certificates
Tax lien certificates are sold by counties and municipalities in order to monetize their delinquent real estate taxes and obtain cash to help fund many crucial government programs and services. The tax lien certificate represents a senior secured position in the underlying real property, superior to all mortgages and other nongovernmental liens.
Because taxes amount to only a small fraction of property value, owners and related lenders have significant motivation to redeem tax lien certificates rather than lose their assets. When a tax lien certificate is redeemed, the certificate holder receives the principal invested plus interest.
