Tax acquisition of property question - Posted by Barbara (ME)

Have any of you ever acquired property for back taxes? If so, what is the procedure and how long does this take?
I have a log cabin on a lake and there is a small cabin next door on land which is right beside mine.I would like to acquire it as it gives me even more frontage on the lake, and I would like to own the cabin.
I went to the town office today to find out who owns it, and they gave me the name of three joint owners (all different names). However, the tax clerk told me for the past 2 years the tax bill has been returned as unknown(all three are listed as a post office box).
Thanks in advance for any input or ideas.
