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. You may be required to provide proof of identity - NJ Tax Sale Law only allows ‘interested parties’ the right to redeem.
For the purpose of lien redemptions, 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.
