Depends on state law.
For example in NE abandoned property can be reclaimed by the ''owner" for up to 5 years after it was abandoned.
Even then the property is supposed to be sold and proceeds offered to the state of NE to cover any out standing taxes owed.
Finally after all of that is properly covered then its finders keepers, loosers weepers.
Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.
