Tax Auction - Posted by Greg

I have searched archives but am not able to find an answer…
I have located a house (in SC) that is going to go for tax auction next month. There is a sign posted on a tree in front of house to this effect with tax outstanding around $4000 (house value prob ~$400k) -it has been deserted a couple of years in very nice neghbourhood.
Is there any way to buy the house/pay up the taxes by paying the $4000 before it goes to auction? Also, does anyone know if the law in SC requires me to wait a year to see if it is redeemed by the owner before I can get ownership?
Thanks in advance.
