Indiana Court of Appeals Holds Tax Buyer to Degree of Diligence Similar to Illinois

In David L. Jenner and Vickie Jenner v. Bloomington Cellular Services, Inc. and Crown Castle South LLC, the Monroe County (Indiana) circuit court and the Indiana Court of Appeals held the tax buyer to a degree of diligence similar to that required of Illinois tax buyers. Although the lease was not in the chain of title, “The Legislature crafted the statute to require that tax sale purchasers provide notice to any person with a substantial, publicly recorded interest as that is defined in Section 6-1.1-24-1.9.”
