Tax Sale
Published on: 2/14/2012 12:00 AM



General Information

Properties in Nevada County that have had tax delinquencies for five or more years may be offered for sale by the Tax Collector. The primary purpose of the tax sale is to return the tax defaulted property to the tax rolls. Offering the property for sale achieves this by either selling the property or forcing redemption.

Buyer Beware!

All parcels offered at public auction are sold “as is”.  No warranty is expressed or implied in any manner regarding property sold at the public auction, including, but not limited to, the following example:  no claims are made to guarantee access to, or building permits for, any of the parcels involved in the sale.  Prior to bidding, it is your responsibility to adequately research properties, so you know what you are buying.  The County assumes no liability for any other possible liens, encumbrances or easement, recorded or not recorded. Lack of adequate research may result in the purchase of unusable property, with no entitlement to a refund.  ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  The ability to challenge a sale extends one-year from the date tax deeds are recorded.  Buyers should be aware that a rescission of the sale could occur although very rarely.  Should the sale be considered invalid, the tax deed will be rescinded and the buyer will receive a full refund of the purchase price.
