Notice of Foreclosure Right to Redeem

After twelve (12) months from the date of tax sale, the purchaser at the tax sale may terminate or foreclose on the owner's right to redeem the property by causing a notice or notices of the foreclosure to be served by certified mail to the owner of record and to all interest holders which appear on the public record. In addition, the notice of foreclosure is to be published in the county in which the property is located, once a week for four (4) consecutive weeks during the six-month period immediately prior to the week of the redemption deadline date specified in the notice.

If the redemption is not made until after the notice has been given, then the cost of serving the notice or notices and publishing the notice shall be added to the redemption price to cover the cost of making the necessary examinations to determine the persons upon whom notice should be served (O.C.G.A.§ 48-4-42, 48-4-45 and 48-4-46).

Any questions about this foreclosure process should be referred to an attorney.
