    Tax sale purchasers must provide notice to any person with a substantial, publicly recorded interest even if their interest lies outside the chain of title. “Requiring a tax-sale purchaser to search outside the chain of title—even if it means searching thousands of records in the county recorder’s office—is one of the safeguards created by the statute.”
