Hi and thanks for being there. I'm interested in beginning purchasing tax lien properties in and around Knoxville TN. Does anybody out there know the procedure. I have a list of properties to look at which are going up for auction soon. I think I should go take a look at the area, the houses, etc. But should I do a title search? I called the court house and the senior guy for that department told me when I am the high bidder on a property I get it free of any other encumberances. To me that sounds too good to be true. If any of you can give me some insight, I'd be grateful. Thanks
