Non payment

If you don’t pay your tax the municipality has the right to use enforcement to collect the property tax. If you don’t pay your property tax you will get a final notice from your Municipal Property Tax Office.

Unpaid property tax constitutes a lien on the property for the benefit of the municipality.

If you don’t pay your debts within 10 days after delivery of the final notice the municipality can issue a notice of seizure on your income and assets. Your assets can be sold to cover your debts. The municipality also has a right to terminate municipal service to your property.

If your debt is still not paid two years after the final notice you are right to the property is forfeited. The property may be seized and sold in a public auction, base in Law no.03/L-204 article 18 and 19.
