E & P Consulting Services

E & P Consulting Services handles all aspects of adjudicated property sales from start to finish for one set price. 

What is adjudicated property? It is property that has been placed in government hands because property taxes haven't been paid. Adjudicated property meets the following criteria:

  • It is real or immovable property. 
  • The property taxes were not paid.
  • The property was not purchased at a subsequent tax sale.

Adjudicated properties will usually not come up for another tax sale and can be sold by the parish to private individuals or companies.*

*If you are interested in acquiring adjudicated property that has not yet reached the 3 year time period after adjudication, contact us to discuss how that property might be offered for tax sale.  This service is available at no cost for those political subdivisions with which we already handle adjudicated sales.
