Yes, if we are aware of such properties. When we become aware of properties on our tax sale list that are known or suspected to be contaminated, we will identify these properties along with supplying the lead agency’s name and address where all available information may be reviewed.
Do not bid on these properties unless you understand the issues related to contaminated properties. Prior to bidding, you should contact your attorney regarding the possible purchase of contaminated properties.
To find out if a particular property has been withdrawn from the sale, check the Govease website. The right of redemption terminates at 5 p.m. PST on the last business day prior to the tax sale.
Govease.com will begin registering bidders on July 17th, 2023. Full information and instructions will be available on the Govease website or by calling 769-208-5050 ext 2.
You may also bid by fax if you do not have access to the Internet. A bidder deposit of $2,500 will be required before placing a bid on any parcel. Bidders are advised to arrange for their deposits early to make sure they are eligible to bid. The Tax Collector’s Office will not be registering bidders nor accepting bids, all questions should be directed to Govease.
All parcels will be sold by Auction ID. Minimum bids will be as stated per parcel and each raise will be in increments of at least $100 until the close of the auction on the stated date and time on the Govease website.
An auto bid (or proxy) saves you time and money. An auto bid authorizes Govease to bid $100 above any competing bid, up to, but not exceeding the maximum dollar amount that you are willing to pay. In other words, your bid will automatically increase only as other bidders participate, up to your specified maximum amount. This enables you to continually bid without having to constantly monitor the auction.
Successful bidders must pay by cashier’s check, money order, or wire transfer, and payment must be received by 5 p.m. PST, 24hours after the sale closes. In addition to the purchase price, the documentary transfer tax ($0.55 per $500 of the purchase price) is required. A $35 per parcel processing fee and a $35 per winning bidder fee will also be required by the successful bidder.
Specific information on each parcel will be available on the Govease website.
