Trailer, boat or vehicle left on a tax sale property

If a trailer, boat or vehicle is left on a tax sale property, does it become the property of the new owner? Does this only apply to unmovable structures?

When purchasing tax sale properties, you are only purchasing the property and not potential mobile homes, trailers, boats or vehicles that may be present on the land. Regardless of the absence of a mobile homes by-law, etc.

Because these 'items' would likely still belong to 'an' owner, a precaution you may want to take to avoid breaking any laws and being penalized, would be to make strong efforts to determine who owned these 'items', to provide sufficient notice to them and to let them know you would like them to come retrieve their property; If your efforts are unsuccessful, you want to consider having these 'items' towed and impounded, unfortunately, at your own expense...; We would recommend you get legal advice/contact someone who specializes in this area to get more information on related laws and courses of action you might be required to take.

Would this also apply to structures left on the property? Im thinking gazebo, boat dock, sheds, play structure, deck, or even landscaping items like patio stones, or statues?

It could...

The truth of the matter is, if a former owner wants to 'rock the boat' so to speak, you may find yourself dealing with unwanted static regarding personal claims of possibly some or all of the examples you have provided. It is generally good practice to err on the side of caution and never rule out the possibility of someone posing an issue with such things.

While we have never personally heard of an issue being raised regarding the specifics you have provided, anything is possible. Again, we would need to point you in the direction of someone who would have a better understanding of what issues, if any, could be raised regarding personal affects left on a tax sale property. Unfortunately, we do not provide legal advice/general advice on these specified aspects of the 'post tax sale' and all we can really say is that if someone does raise concerns, you may want to cooperate or be prepared to deal with that in a more legal approach.
