Massachusetts Tax Liens: Part 1 The Legal and Business Process

Sounds simple, right?
  Buy a tax lien, and sit back and collect 16% interest!  Investing in tax liens is an area of real estate investing considered to be “passive” by comparison to rehabbing or rental properties, but it can be much more involved than we realize.  And the returns can be variable.  Do you always get the interest?  Can you foreclose on the property?  Do you then have clear title if you do?

Todd Rodman is a managing partner at Seder and Chandler, with a significant portion of his practice focused on tax lien law.  He has over 30 years of experience in real estate law with a wide variety of clients.  Ann Bellamy is a real estate investor and hard money lender, who became interested in MA tax liens and purchased a small portfolio of Worcester liens.  Kathy Doyle, Ann’s partner in the venture, also branched out into Illinois liens.  

You will learn:

  • The difference between purchasing a tax lien v. the actual real estate
  • A summary of the real estate tax collection process in Massachusetts – yes, you have to understand this stuff!
  • Sales and Assignments of Municipal Tax Liens by Auction – where the action is!
  • The Auction Process – including premiums
  • Redemption of Property purchased through the lien process
  • Additional ways to buy liens via RFP and from lien investors
  • What happens when you buy liens in other states
  • Did you know Illinois tax liens pay 36% interest?

Part 2 will be presented at a later date, and will include what happens in real life in tax lien investing: “The rest of the story,” and some “War stories” from the trenches.

Next Worcester Meeting

Don't Make an 
Expensive Mistake!

We all know that with the age of the housing stock in Massachusetts, sooner all later, we’ll run into a property containing asbestos and have to remove it.  But do you know all of the materials that contain asbestos? And do you know where the responsibility lies for ensuring compliance? You can assume your contractor will deal with it properly, but that can cost you big time, since “You don’t know what you don’t know."  

Gregory Levins has been with Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection since 1982 and has focused mainly on asbestos-related issues since 1987. He is the Section Chief of the Asbestos Program and the Environmental Strike Force. Greg has all the same certifications as those in private industry.

You will hear:

  • A walk through of the regulatory requirements
  • How the Department deals with intentional vs unintentional violations
  • What you must do before you disturb any materials
  • Where the liability lies in non-compliance
  • How to tell what materials contain asbestos, some obvious and some not so much, with photos of examples
  • The latitude and discretion that the DEP has as a department when deciding who is a target
