Tax Lien Certificates - Posted by BR

Interested in a home next to my mother that will be going thru foreclosure soon. I know there was a tax lien sale but I can’t find out who purchased it. I’d like to purchase the tax lien certificate then purchase the home when it goes thru the foreclosure process. (At this time, the guy won’t discuss it).
How do I find out who purchased the tax lien certificate? I contacted the Treasurer’s Office and was told that I couldn’t buy the certificate from the buyer. She wouldn’t give me any information, just kept telling me I had to pay them.
If I pay the Treasurer’s Office, all I’m doing is paying this guy’s taxes!!! The tax lien certificate would provide me with some sort of interest in the property. Am I correct, or is she ‘out to lunch’.
I’m just trying to get my ducks in a row.
