My MIL has been paying taxes on 2 lots of land for 15 to 20 years. She was friends with the owners, they lived out of USA and asked her to look after it for them. Her name is not on the deed, just as a "c/o". They died many years ago and had no children. The tax bills kept coming to her and she still pays them, has kept them current. She did this because she was told by someone if you pay the taxes long enough, the property becomes yours.
She spoke to an attorney who was mystified by the whole thing, not much help, and she’s reluctant to speak to another…does anyone know what, if any, rights she could have to this property? It’s in Florida. Thanks!
