General discussion of the due process considerations and standards set forth in decisions of the United States Supreme Court with respect to the enactment of legislation purporting to terminate certain interests in real property without notice to the persons holding those interests. [1217-1221] Proposed legislation foreclosing all rights of redemption in certain land to which the town of Nantucket holds or has conveyed a tax title, to be effective one year after enactment, would create a self-executing rule of law of general application and on its face would violate no Federal or State due process requirements with respect to notification of the general class of persons holding such interests in the affected land. [1221-1223] Proposed legislation foreclosing all rights of redemption in certain land only in the town of Nantucket would involve a geographical classification that is rationally related to legitimate State interests (i.e., the collection of property taxes, the stability of tax titles, the efficient and final determination of disputes concerning such titles and the reduction in litigation over the status of old tax titles in Nantucket) and is not arbitrary or invidious; therefore the proposed legislation on its face would not violate the equal protection provisions of the United States Constitution or the Massachusetts Constitution. [1223-1227]


"SECTION 1. Whenever the town of Nantucket has conveyed or sold any land or holds a tax title pursuant to chapter sixty of the General Laws by any instrument in writing conveying or taking or purporting to convey or to take such land, and said instrument is duly recorded in the registry of deeds for the district wherein such land is situated and a period of forty years elapses after the instrument is accepted for record, and the notice or procedure for taking and sale or conveyance under said chapter or the instrument or record thereof because of defect, irregularity, or omission, fails to comply in any respect with any requirement of law relating thereto, including a failure by the town to foreclose the right of redemption, the instrument or record thereof shall, notwithstanding such defects, irregularities or omissions be effective for all purposes and shall operate to foreclose all rights or [sic] redemption to the same extent as though such notice or procedure or the instrument or record thereof had originally not been subject to any such defects, irregularities, or omissions, unless an instrument of redemption has been recorded prior to the effective date of this act.


The bill provides in pertinent part, only as to instruments recorded prior to July 1, 1948, that, "[where] the town of Nantucket has conveyed or sold any land or holds a tax title . . . and such instrument is duly recorded . . . and the notice and procedure for taking and sale or conveyance under said . . . instrument . . . because of defect, irregularity, or omission, fails to comply . . . with any requirement of law relating thereto . . . the instrument . . . shall, notwithstanding such defects, irregularities or omissions be effective for all purposes and shall operate to foreclose all rights . . . unless an instrument of redemption has been recorded prior to the effective date of this act. . . . This act shall take effect one year after the date of its enactment." [Note 1] Through these provisions the bill on its face purports to terminate certain property interests without specific notice to the holders of those interests. Therefore, a question exists whether the bill on its face violates due process requirements.


The fact that the bill is limited in its operation to titles related to land in Nantucket only, considering the circumstances, does not render it invalid under the equal protection clause. The problem of procedurally defective tax titles in Nantucket is a large-scale problem apparently because for decades (if not centuries) Nantucket landowners commonly held "minute fractional interests" in large tracts of land, see Hardy v. Jaeckle, 371 Mass. 573, 580 (1976), and the town failed carefully to observe formal procedures in the taking of tax titles. The effects of this tradition of administrative laxity (which were compounded by the often complicated nature of land ownership in Nantucket), combined with the tremendous increase in land values in recent years, have spawned a large volume of speculation in old tax titles that, while not absolutely limited to Nantucket (see, e.g., Krueger v. Devine, 18 Mass. App. Ct. 397 [1984]), has been particularly troublesome and expensive there, as the number of reported and pending cases referred to above suggests. In view of these 041b061a72
