Investigate Before You Bid

Property is sold as is. The burden is upon the prospective purchaser to thoroughly research, before the sale, any matters relevant to his or her decision to purchase a property on the trustee property list. The County makes no warranties or claims as to the conditions, covenants or restrictions. The County’s sole interest is to recover the amounts owed.

The purchaser may not be able to obtain clear title and may not be able to obtain title insurance for the property purchased.

Issuance of Deed

The Treasurer’s office will issue a Treasurer’s Deed to the name indicated on the registration form "Name of Ownership to be Recorded on Deed." The Treasurer’s office will record the deed within 30 days of the auction date and upon completion of the recording process the original deed will be mailed to the new owner. If you wish to change the ownership name, it will be your responsibility to record a separate document.
