URGENT: Bronchick WARRANTY DEED Fill in the Blank - Posted by Bill

I am not Bronchik obviously, but that blank is the date for the taxes of this year. I just checked my most recent “Warranty Deed” from a deal we did a couple months back, and the date is 12/31/99.
so, the taxes for this year are what that refers to, which are due and payable in installements in my county, in the month of May and September of the following year.

Hope that helps,
Jim IL

I’m always impressed with people who do their own deeds. Me? I haven’t done one in my entire career. I let my title company or lawyer do these. If it’s wrong I have someone to sue…how about you?

And now, for a quick story. I recently received a tax bill for a property I own. At least, I’m supposed to own it…except the tax bill is for the property next door…the one owned by the neighbor!

I trotted down to the courthouse yesterday…checked everything out. Turns out the legal description on my deed is right (had it not been there would have been hell to pay at the title company.) And in case you think title companies never screw it up, think again. I’ve seen them deed the wrong property.

In this case the county had it wrong. Wrong parcel number associated with the wrong legal descriptions. Ouch! The next door neighbor has been paying the taxes on MY property…and I’ve been paying his. Interesting…my taxes are almost DOUBLE his. You’d think this guy would have noticed this before!

What will happen? Hard to say. But I’m sure glad I had a title company handle this for me…and didn’t save a few bucks doing it myself.

Each to his own.
