    I have a mortgage lien on a property in Philadelphia that appears to have been sold at a Sheriff's sale without any notice to me. The lien is still filed with the city. The sale was for delinquent taxes that the current owner has not paid. He has not paid my mortgage either, but that is another situation.

    Should the Sheriff's office sent me notification of the auction? What action can i take if notice is required and was not delivered?

    I quick googling convinces me that there are too many resources out there for me to take the time to study so I suggest you google Pennsylvania or Philadelphia property tax liens and start doing some research.

    As a practical matter I doubt that you'll get anywhere fighting the taxing authority so the end result is that you may have to sue your borrower for breach of contract.
