How to Cure Title When a Notice of Sheriff Sale was not Given to a Junior Lienholder.

When notice was omitted to a junior lien holder, the most common means to fix the title defect was to conduct a new sale. Most of the time, however, the junior holder had no interest in purchasing the property.

Supreme Court overturns Superior Court in Beneficial v Vukman, holding that a defect in an Act 91 Notice is procedural, not jurisdictional.

In the opinion of the Court, Justice Eakin stated: “Because we determine defective Act 91 notice does not implicate the jurisdiction of the court, the other issues raised need not be addressed and we remand to the trial court without considering them.”
