How long does a buyer have to transfer deed into their name?I sold a piece of property on April 1st 2013 as a private sale and wrote them a transfer deed, and even had to correct it once just a few days after, when the buyer went to the courthouse to complete the transfer. Now, 6 months later, I was just contacted by the code today about a violation, so I looked it up on the county property tax appraisers site, and the property is still in my name. What do I do. The buyer was saying they were thinking about moving back to their home town in Puerto Rico and their phone is no longer in service. Do i reclaim the property? resell it? or is there a way to put it into their name without them. I have original sale documents with their info. Please Help.
