Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.

Yes, simply because the charges lie against the property, which means that the charges go with the property. So, even though it is sold, the municipality can execute against the property.
