If a mortgagor's property taxes remain unpaid so as to subject the mortgagor's property to a tax sale pursuant to Article 4 of the "tax sale law" (R.S.54:5-19 et seq.), and if the mortgagor's property tax payments are made by a mortgagee or a servicing organization which receives the original tax bill, and a mortgagor's name appears in the notice which the collector of taxes is required to print pursuant to R.S.54:5-25 due to the failure of the mortgagee or the servicing organization to resolve the delinquency, the mortgagor may sue the mortgagee or the servicing organization in a court of competent jurisdiction for damages, including court costs and attorneys' fees and the cost of printing a correction in the same newspaper or newspapers in which the notice of tax delinquency appeared.
