Taking Title to Tax Sale Property
A Chancery Court Clerk and Master's Tax Deed is issued to the new owner after the tax sale.  The new owner must request the Chancery Court Clerk and Master's Deed to the property by calling the Chancery Court Clerk's Office at (901) 222-3917. In order to transfer title of the property to the new owner, the purchaser must record the deed in the office of the Shelby County Register located at 1075 Mullins Station, Suite W165, Memphis, TN 38134.

The Tax Deed from Chancery Court conveys the title of the property to the new purchaser.  The title is free of all encumbrances that existed before the tax sale, except for a lien associated with any taxes or assessments or other rights of any taxing agency that does not participate or consent to the tax sale.
