Are back taxes (unpaid taxes) transferred through to the new owner with the sale of a property?We are making an offer to purchase a property that has no liens, but the current owner has admitted to not paying her taxes for the last several years. My question is that when we complete the sale, are we responsible for those taxes that she had not paid, or are we getting the property free and clear of that debt?Thank you!April 27 2010 - Ocean Beach00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
