Phoenix Funding, Inc. v. Shartane and Robert Krute


This case involves the Tax Sale Law, N.J.S.A. 54:5-1 to -
137. We consider whether a person who acquires an interest in
property that is the subject of an action to foreclose a tax
sale certificate may redeem without intervening in the
proceeding if the person has a "close personal relationship"
with the property owner. We conclude that N.J.S.A. 54:5-98,
N.J.S.A. 54:5-89.1 and Rule 4:64-6(b) require intervention.
