Auction

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, foreclosures were suspended in 2020 and no auctions were held. The next auction is scheduled to be held in 2021.

Foreclosure and Auction

State law requires that properties subject to tax foreclosure be made available to the State, the local community, and the County for purchase prior to auction. Properties that are not taken by a government entity are offered for auction in September and October. Please be aware that state law does not allow the owner of a property that has been foreclosed to purchase that property at auction for anything less than the taxes, fees, and interest that were outstanding at the time of foreclosure.

FOR AUCTION QUESTIONS PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO: WCTauction@waynecounty.com

Properties sold in the Tax Foreclosure Auction are sold "as is and "where is" with no warranties, either expressed or implied. Prior to the auction, purchasers are advised to research the property(s)' condition and to perform careful due diligence to understand any potential issues with the property, including but not limited to, special assessment, environmental issues or demolition status. Please read the auction rules and regulations before you register for the auction.

When property auctions are held

Property auctions are held in September and October of the year foreclosed. Properties are offered for a minimum bid that consists of all delinquent taxes, penalties and interest. Properties not sold at the September auction are then offered at our October auction. Successful bidders will receive a Quit Claim deed to the property.
