Paul Hunt was quoted in another Washington Post article about a Washington DC tax lien on properties. As an experienced tax lien attorney, Mr. Hunt has contributed to multiple Washington Posts articles.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Paul Hunt, a lawyer who frequently represents lien buyers, said the system works well in the majority of cases. Those appearing most often as tax-lien defendants are developers who have not paid their taxes for business reasons, he said, and the auction process is the most efficient way to put properties back to productive use.
“This process is part of community development, strange as that may seem,” he said.
Most lawyers who practice in Room 519, Hunt said, are conscientious about who owns the properties they deal with, helping bona fide homeowners navigate the system to get their properties back.
“If we get the little old lady, we’ll continue it, and we’ll never ask for judgment,” he said.
But Hunt acknowledged that legal fees can be excessive for cases that are “a little bit procedural in nature.” Higher fees can be justified in more complex cases, he said, such as those with multiple defendants or requiring complex title research.
