The judgment amount is the amount owed to the plaintiff filing the foreclosure.
The Sheriff's Office does not have access to the property; therefore we are unable to make
arrangements for viewing. The property still may be occupied, attempts to view them would be done at
your own risk. If you are on private property without owner's consent it is considered trespassing.
You may enter a proxy bid on the website, but no sales will be completed before the auction.
The Sheriff's Office does not require pre-approval documentation prior to the auction.
Yes. You must register with RealAuction and meet their requirements in order to bid. Training is available on the RealAuction website if you have any problems with registering.
The Sheriff's Office does not receive lien information on the properties sold. Therefore we recommend
doing a title search prior to bidding so you as a purchaser know ahead of time what you may or may not
be responsible for.
Once the balance has been paid in full and the new purchaser has the deed in their name they will need
to file and receive a Writ of Possession from the Clerk of Courts. This procedure gives the Sheriff's
Office the authority to forcibly remove the tenants from the property. The cost of the writ of
possession and all moving costs are at your expense.
The Sheriff's Office does not have possession of keys. Once the balance has been paid in full, and the
property is vacant the purchaser will have to get a locksmith to enter property.
No. At the auction, we will collect a deposit. From the date of the auction, the Plaintiff’s Attorney has 30 days to file the Confirmation Entry. Afterwards, the buyer will have 30 days to make the final payment. Your 30 days doesn’t start until the Confirmation Entry is signed by the Judge (we’ll notify you when it is signed).
