Tax Lien on property which occurred after closing but prior to the deed being recordedI purchased my home back in 2010. Just recently, I found out that there is a Tax Lien on my property from not paying Q2 taxes in 2010 (Closing was 4/20/2010 and Taxes were due 5/1/2010). The taxes should have been paid through my escrow account with my mortgage company, but the taxes were not due to a mistake in my Settlement Statement. The Settlement Statement lists the Q2 Taxes for my escrow account, but when you add up the numbers manually, the actual total that I paid in closing costs does NOT include the Q2 Taxes.I understand that I'm responsible for making sure my mortgage company pays my taxes, but that was something I didn't even think about because the amount did show up on the Settlement statement.To make matters worse; I was never notified about my taxes not being paid. I'm almost positive that this is because the deed wasn't recorded until 9/30/2010. The previous owner probably received the notice and ignored it.I even refinanced recently in mid 2012, and the title company didn't even see that their was a lien on the property (I didn't know about the lien).Here is a timeline: Closing: 4/20/2010 Q2 Taxes Due: 5/1/2010 Tax Lein Issued: 9/1/2010 Deed Recorded: 9/30/2010 Received Notification of Lien/Foreclosure proceedings: 12/5/2012I do plan to pay the lien (I don't think I have any choice at this point), but my question is: Do I have any legal recourse for any of the mistakes during closing or negligence to record the deed in a timely manner? I now have additional fees/interest that needs to be paid on the lien and I don't feel like I should be held accountable for those additional fees.December 07 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
