Iowa is a tax lien state. While Iowa is technically a Ownership bid down state, many counties actually use a random or rotational bid system. It has a very attractive interest rate at 24%, but redemption and foreclosure procedures are more complex than many other states. Lien holders must foreclose within 3 years or their lien will expire. Ownership bid down can lead to situations where the lien holder is granted partnership with the original property owner after foreclosure.
