We help county and municipal governments collect delinquent taxes through the tax foreclosure sales process.
At The Kania Law Firm, we represent county and municipal governments tasked with selling foreclosed homes at auction to interested buyers. This is one of the primary focuses of our thriving firm in Western North Carolina, and we welcome you to look through our foreclosure listings and utilize our online resources for additional information about upcoming auctions on tax foreclosure sales.
Generally speaking, tax foreclosure sales occur at the County Courthouse, either on the steps of the building or at another location predetermined by the Clerk of the Court. We can inform you of where certain sales are taking place, so you have ample time to prepare your bid and arrive ready to take part in the auction.
If you are in attendance at the sale, you can raise the opening bid at any point during the auction. If the last bid is not raised by any other party at the sale, the winner of the auction must submit either a 5% deposit on the property or $750.00, whichever is greater. This funding must be in the form of cash or certified funds – no personal checks are accepted. Depending on how many bidders attend the sale, the bidding process usually takes between 5 and 30 minutes.
If you are interested in purchasing a foreclosure property for investment purposes, we encourage you to review our additional online resources about tax foreclosure sales and peruse our listings of properties awaiting auction. If you have questions about our upcoming tax foreclosure sales, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
