Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wayne County Treasurer's Office has suspended foreclosures for 2020. As a result, there will not be a foreclosure auction this year.
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
