Oakley Property Sheriff's Deed

Earlier this week, the Deed for the Oakley property arrived in the mail confirming the conveyance and recording of the real estate transfer to recognize me as the official owner of the lot. The legal jargon in the deed with regards to the court case between the Hamilton County Treasurer and the defendant that brought about the tax sale is somewhat confusing and quite different from the language in the Warranty Deed I received when acquiring my first lot in Pleasant Ridge. That said, one key line in the document sums everything up, reading 'The Sale, having been confirmed by the Court on October 13, 2015... do hereby GRANT, SELL, AND CONVEY TO: Michael Benkert all the rights, title and interest of the parties in Court of Common Pleas, Hamilton County, Ohio, Case Number A1404290,' which gives me free and clear ownership of the property unencumbered from any outside parties.
