The object of said suit is to obtain from the court a judgment foreclosing the tax liens against such real estate and ordering the sale of such real estate for the satisfaction of said tax liens thereon (except liens in favor of the United States of America, if any), including principal, interest, penalties, attorney's fees and costs. Such action is brought against the real estate only and no personal judgment shall be entered therein.
The serial number assigned by the collector to each parcel of real estate, a description of each such parcel, a statement of the total principal amount of all delinquent tax bills against each such parcel of real estate, all of which, as to each parcel, is more fully set out and itemized in the aforesaid petition, and the name of the last known person appearing on the records of the collector in whose name said tax bills were listed or charged for the year preceding the calendar year in which the list described in said petition was filed with the collector, are, respectively, as follows:
(Here set out the respective serial numbers, descriptions, names and statements of total principal amounts of tax bills, next above referred to.)
The total principal amounts of delinquent taxes set out in this notice do not include the lawful interest, penalties, attorney's fees and costs which have accrued against the respective parcels of real estate, all of which in each case is set out and itemized in the aforesaid petition.
Any person or taxing authority owning or holding any tax bill or claiming any right, title or interest in or to, or lien upon, any such parcel of real estate must file an answer to such suit in the office of the circuit clerk of the aforesaid city, and a copy of such answer with the collector of revenue at the office of the collector of revenue of said city, on or before the ______ day of ______, 20______, and in such answer shall set forth in detail the nature and amount of such interest and any defense or objection to the foreclosure of the tax liens, or any affirmative relief he and it may be entitled to assert with respect thereto.
Any person having any right, title or interest in or to, or lien upon, any parcel of such real estate may redeem such parcel of real estate by paying all of the sums mentioned therein, to the undersigned Collector of Revenue, including principal, interest, penalties, attorney's fees and costs then due, at any time prior to the time of the foreclosure sale of such real estate by the sheriff.
In the event of failure to answer or redeem on or before the date herein fixed as the last day for filing answer in the suit, by any person having the right to answer or redeem, such person shall be forever barred and foreclosed as to any defense or objection he might have to the foreclosure of such liens for delinquent taxes and a judgment of foreclosure may be taken by default. Redemption may be made, however, up to the time fixed for the holding of sheriff's foreclosure sale, and thereafter there shall be no equity of redemption and each such person having any right, title or interest in or to, or any lien upon, any such parcel of real estate described in the petition so failing to answer or redeem, as aforesaid, shall be forever barred and foreclosed of any right, title, or interest in, or lien upon, any equity of redemption in said real estate.
