How do I pay off a lien?
You must request in writing to the Collector a statement of redemption. At no time should you approach the lien holder. The request must include the date that you anticipate making payment and a statement of your legal interest in the property. The Collector will provide you with a payoff figure that is computed to the next Committee meeting date. You may be required to provide proof of identity: New Jersey Tax Sale Law only allows "interested parties" the right to redeem.

Upon receipt of the redemption figure, payment must be made at least one week prior to the scheduled Committee meeting. The only accepted forms of payment are cash, certified check, or money order. The Collector will notify the Lien Holder that payment has been received, and request the lien certificate from the holder. This certificate will be forwarded to you; you will then have the lien removed at the County.
