Property Tax Foreclosure Equity Claims
Helping Michigan Homeowners Reclaim Equity After Foreclosure
The emotional and financial pain of losing a home due to property tax foreclosure is immense and far-reaching. Those who have lost their homes in this way have not only lost one of their biggest assets and suffered severe emotional trauma, but may end up homeless as a result. This situation has only been made worse by local county governments, who regularly sell tax-foreclosure properties for more than the back taxes owed, only to keep the excess profits.
Thankfully, the Michigan Supreme Court has recently decided a case allowing homeowners to reclaim the equity lost due to a property tax foreclosure. If you or someone you know has been foreclosed upon due to a failure or inability to pay property taxes, the experienced attorneys at Grewal Law PLLC are ready to help you to reclaim the equity that is rightfully yours.

Who Is Eligible for Compensation?
In Rafaeli v. Oakland County, the Michigan Supreme Court dealt a definitive blow to Michigan’s existing tax foreclosure law, which permitted county treasurers to profit from properties that were auctioned due to tax foreclosure. When the case was decided in July 2020, this law was ruled unconstitutional based on Michigan’s state laws, and the Court has now stated that “plaintiffs are entitled to just compensation.”
You may be eligible for financial compensation if you can answer yes to the following questions:
- Was your home or other property foreclosed by your local county due to non-payment or underpayment of property taxes in the last 6 years?
- Was that property sold to pay those property taxes?
- Did the property sell for more than the tax debt?
If your home was foreclosed due to underpayment or nonpayment of property taxes in the past six years, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
