What happens if, to satisfy a tax lien/judgement, a non-primary real estate does not sale at a Sheriff's Sale?

Pittsburgh, PA |

In PA and it is not commercial property. Given the real estate market, is this a real possibility? If so, what happens then?

  1. If it doesn't sell, the tax lien follows the title to the property.


  2. Real Estate tax liens are tied to the property. If the City or its collection agency takes the property to tax sale and no one defends it and no one bids enough to buy it to payoff the applien lien, the lien will stay in place.
