Legal Question

Asked on: 6/30/13, 8:36 am

I'm currently owner financing land/home to Lessee since

2004. In 2007, unbeknownst to me, Lessee went to County Tax

office and had property taxes of said land/home put in his

name. Once I found out, I contacted said office and inquired

about it. They(tax office) said it was legal for him to do

so but that the said property is still listed as me being

the owner of property and if he was to default, I would be

liable for taxes.

That's not the problem as of yet. A point has been brought

up to me that if Lessee continues to make the property tax

payments for 7 years continuously, the owner of property

automatically converts to Lessee. Is this the case and if

so, must I hire an attorney to correct this before the 7

years is up.....2014?
