Section 11-48-53

Proceedings for sale of land upon failure of owner to pay assessment, installment, or interest - Effect of error or defect in notice or sale.

No mistake in the notice of sale in the description of the property or in the name of the owner shall vitiate the assessment or the lien and if, for any reason, the sale made by the city or town is ineffectual to pass title, it shall operate as an assignment of the lien, and, upon the request of the purchaser, supplementary proceedings of the same general character as required in this article may be had to correct the errors in said proceedings for his benefit or the lien so assigned to him may be enforced by civil action.
