Do not delay. If you delay, fees, cost and interest can increase significantly. An example of what can occur is as follows:
A 2004 property with an original delinquent tax amount owed of $325.02 had a final amount due at sale of $2,133.26.
If you have not contacted the creditor, you should consider doing so. Many creditors will work with you to try to avoid a Sheriff’s Sale of your property. If the Sheriff’s Sale involves a mortgage foreclosure of your residence, you may reinstate your mortgage by paying the full amount of the delinquencies, including all fees and costs up to the day of the Sheriff’s Sale.
Should your property be among those listed for Sheriff’s Sale, information is available by contacting the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE HOTLINE AT 412-350-4704 daily Monday through Friday (except holidays,) between the hours of 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM and from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
