Extension from Foreclosure

Governor Whitmer has ordered an extension of the March 31, 2020 tax foreclosure redemption deadline to May 29, 2020.  This order only impacts the small number of properties foreclosed on February 20, 2020 as part of case #19-611-CZ.

Unpaid delinquent property taxes can lead to foreclosure and loss of your property after three years.

Hardship extensions are designed to delay foreclosure deadlines by one year for owners who are actively working to catch up on their delinquent property taxes. 

Applications are reviewed for properties that are in forfeiture (delinquent for two years) up to six months prior to foreclosure. Contact our office if you have any questions or need assistance in filling out the application.

If an extension is granted, it’s important to keep in mind that:

  • Interest will continue to accrue
  • If the successive tax year is owed, both years will have to be paid to avoid tax foreclosure in the next year

Please see the Property Tax Process page for more information on the timeline and process.
