Not enough Escrow Money for taxes from previous ownerWe closed on a property on November 29, 2007 on house which was built in 2006. Taxes were assessed only on the lot. The tax bill which just came out and is due in January 31, 2008 is substantially higher since the taxes include the house appraised value now. Taxes in our county in Ohio billed for a whole year behind. The current tax bill covers the first half of 2007; we did not live in the house at the time. The title company collected from the previous owner just on the land.I talked to Title Company where we closed; they are telling me that I am responsible for the difference on the bill because I signed a document at the closing to pay the difference if it was higher. The local auditor/treasure acknowledges that the bill's responsibility is on the previous owner but taxes do not follow people, it is on the property. Since I am the owner of the property now, I am responsible and there is nothing they can do. What should I do, advice is greatly appreciated?December 17 2007 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
