This email, along with the attached Request Form, is a formal request for a copy of the Rhode Island counties' “tax foreclosure excess funds list,” which I believe is maintained by your department. In case of any confusion, the excess funds to which I am referring are those arising in the case of a bid over the amount of the tax owed at the Tax Foreclosure or Trustee’s Foreclosure sale. I am looking for uncollected surplus funds from the following counties:
The information I need from the records is the foreclosure sale date, owner’s name, either the property address or owner’s mailing address, and the amount of surplus funds held. If you have these records in electronic format, I’d prefer the information that way. Otherwise, please let me know how much a hard copy of your list will be, and where and to whom to mail the check.
If you do not maintain a list of these surplus amounts, any advice on how I could collect that information from existing files you have would be very much appreciated!
If I have reached the wrong department, I would very much appreciate this letter being forwarded to the correct department.
If there is anything I can do to aid or expedite the process, please let me know, as I’m eager to do whatever I can to make your job easier.
