There is a house near me that is being auctioned off tomorrow. ?The county recorders office shows lots of records pertaining to one guy, call him OwnerA. ?It looks like he owns the place, has a mortgage, had a lien for foreclosure put against him etc. ?The same stuff I’m seeing with other auctions. ?But, when I went to do a search on the property taxes, it showed the mailing address for the property taxes as going to someone with a totally different name (at the same address) for the past 2 years (I can’t see back more than 2 years).
I can’t think of why someone would be paying the property taxes but not paying the mortgage, and I can’t understand why there would be a different name on the property tax website/bill.
Is this a red flag, or no big deal?
