ALTA Recommends Changes to Property Tax Foreclosure Laws

Across the nation, homeowners are losing their homes and the equity they’ve built in them due to unpaid property tax debts, and older adults, those on a low or fixed incomes, and Black and Latino/Hispanic households are most at risk. 

To help with this, ALTA, along with AARP and the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC), have issued recommendations for states to revise their laws to protect property owners from unnecessary tax foreclosures and promote sustainable homeownership.
