Once the bidding starts, it cannot be interrupted. Also, all bidders will be requested to stay on premises until the deposit is made. The balance is due by 2:00 the next business day. A Certificate of Sale shall be issued once the balance is paid.

If the high bidder fails to make the required deposit, the Clerk will resume the sale starting with the next highest bid. Payment must be in the form of cash, money order or cashier check.

The high bidder will be responsible for completing the DR Form 219 Transfer Form and pay for the Documentary Stamp Tax.

TAX DEEDS

Tax Deed Sales will be held at 11:30 a.m. on the day of the sale.

To participate in a Tax Deed Sale auction, arrive at the courthouse 15 minutes before the auction is scheduled to begin. You will need to check in with the Clerk’s Deputies in the Recording Department. At the time of check-in, you will be required to provide your name and address. The name and address you submit will be used on the deed should you win the bid.

If you are bidding, you will also need a $200.00 cash deposit.

Once the bidding starts, it cannot be interrupted. If you win the bid, you can pay only with cash, cashier’s check, money order or bank draft.

In accordance with state law, the highest bidder has 24 hours to pay any costs associated with the sale. The Clerk’s Office asks that payment be made the same business day as the sale in an attempt to expedite the processing of sale.

This is a sale of the Clerk’s interest in the property, not necessarily a clear and marketable title to the property.
