How to Redeem Your Property

Property sold at tax sale can be redeemed by following these steps:

  • Call the Office of Budget and Finance - Treasury Division at (410) 758-0414 to receive the redemption amount. This information can only be given to the property owner, direct family member, or agent. It may take a few days to obtain this amount if the bidder has to be contacted.
  • A good-through date will be given and payment must be received in full in the form of certified check, money order, or cash by that date. Payments in the form of certified check or money order can be mailed, but please do not mail cash.
  • A few days after the payment has been received, the original tax redemption certificate will be mailed to the person redeeming the property, which also must be the property owner, direct family member, or agent.
  • All redemption payments are collected through this office; this includes any legal fees that the bidder may charge. No other payments should be made to any other party other than the Office of Budget and Finance, or the redemption cannot be completed.
