Claims; Walter S. Lingebach. Amends previous legislation providing relief to Walter S. Lingebach. In 1971, Mr. Lingebach purchased real property in Northumberland County pursuant to the treasurer's delinquent tax sale. Under law at the time, Mr. Lingebach would have been eligible after a number of years to make application to obtain clear title; however, a statute that would have permitted him to continue the process to completion was repealed in 1984 pursuant to the recodification of Title 58 of the Code of Virginia because it was deemed "obsolete." The amendment allows Mr. Lingebach to institute a proceeding in the circuit court of Northumberland County to obtain a deed to such property in accordance with the provisions of the former 58-1027 or former 58-1029 through 58-1117 and extends the sunset provision from July 1, 2007, to July 1, 2008. This bill also contains an emergency clause. Read the Bill »
