Rancho Relaxo, a “nuisance” property in Bird Rock at 5460 La Jolla Hermosa that 18 neighbors recently got a $136,000 legal judgment against, has paid nearly $7,000 in overdue taxes, averting a March 18 sale at public auction.

News of the property’s back taxes being paid came from John Weil, chief of staff for Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, in information obtained from the county tax collector’s office.

“We originally heard the owner would need to borrow the funds and pay the taxes, or sell the home and pay (taxes) out of proceeds,” Weil said, adding he’s heard the property’s in escrow.

“My understanding is negotiations are underway for a sale of the property, which I assume would resolve the situation with the neighbor,” said Joe Parker, president of Bird Rock Community Council. “It’s just another example of how Bird Rock works very well together as a community, and affects partners with the city of San Diego and the county.”
