What is Adjudicated Property?
It is immovable property on which the property taxes were not paid and which was not purchased at the subsequent tax sale. If no one buys the property at this tax sale, state law requires that it be “adjudicated” to the Parish. Once the property is adjudicated to the Parish, it will not come up for another tax sale. It can only be; redeemed (which will place the property back in the name of the tax debtor), sold by the Parish through the abandoned adjudicated process or declared needed by the Parish for public purposes.
