Land Court Tax Lien Foreclosure Cases Resources

The Land Court has jurisdiction over all tax lien foreclosures in Massachusetts.

A tax lien foreclosure is a type of court case in which a city or town (or sometimes a third party) can seek to obtain full ownership of property if the property taxes, water bills, or sewer bills are not paid. The resources on this page provide a general summary of and information related to the tax lien foreclosure process that appears in Chapter 60 of the Massachusetts General Laws. These resources only provide a broad overview. The tax lien foreclosure process is complicated and has strict deadlines; if your property is or may become subject to a tax lien foreclosure, you should seek legal advice, if possible.
