Hi, and thanks in advance for any help here. Basic background: my mom's husband was in a facility and signed all of the MERP papers without my mothers' knowledge. When he passed, she got a packet in the mail basically saying she doesn't own anything, even though, at the time, she was still paying off her mortgage. Now everything is paid off, and they allow us to squat here, but the property taxes, county taxes etc., are many years behind and she is being sued with the threat of them taking the house and selling it to the highest bidder to appease this. I guess I am kind of wondering how this would work, as she doesn't own the property or houses anymore?
Would the MERP ownership/lien supercede the county taking away everything for payment or ??? Just confused here as to liability vs collection and whom is entitled to what. I mean, she can't pay the taxes, and she owns nothing for them to sue for or take? I guess I am trying to figure out if the MERP ownership prevents the county from taking the property and house or how that works. Thanks again, if more info is needed I will try to provide.
