Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Property Tax Code. Provides that in addition to filing a petition for a tax deed for a property sold at a collector's scavenger sale, the petitioner must attach, along with the petition, a professional appraisal of the property for which the tax deed is sought. Provides that if the court determines that the appraised value of the property greatly exceeds the amount of the judgment of sale at a scavenger sale, then the court shall require an independent inquiry into the well-being of the owner of the property before issuing the deed and, if necessary, enter an appropriate order to achieve equity in the matter.

Provides that, upon receipt of notification, the court may appoint a special investigator to investigate whether the owner is a disabled person. Provides that, within 30 days after appointment, the special investigator shall file a written report with the court. Provides that, if upon receipt of the report the court enters an order requiring the filing of a petition for appointment of a guardian for a disabled adult, tax deed proceedings shall be stayed until further order of court. Provides that, if the court orders that a petition to declare the property owner a disabled person be filed, and a guardian is appointed for that disabled person, the period to redeem the property shall be extended for an additional 6 months from the date of his or her appointment.
