All payments for anything connected with the 2015 Scavenger Sale must be made using certified or cashier’s check, money order, or cash. No business or personal checks or credit cards will be accepted. Checks must be in the exact amount of the payment due. No change will be made on a non-cash transaction. During the sale, each buy sheet must be paid with a separate cashier’s or certified check or money order in the exact amount required for that buy sheet.
Properties, on which delinquent tax liens will be sold, are sold AS IS. The delinquent taxes on the parcels offered for sale are described solely by their Property Index Number (PIN), and NOT the common street address. The Treasurer’s Office does not assume any responsibility, implied or otherwise, as to the accuracy of street addresses and/or property classifications, or to the legal status or condition of the properties. It is the responsibility of each buyer to research the property location, classification, nature and condition of any property or improvements prior to the sale. All sales are final.
