Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the difference between a Sheriff Sale and a Tax Sale? Are they the same?

A tax sale is based on back taxes, and the property is bought subject to all liens and encumbrances. A Sheriff's Sale is a foreclosure sale on one of the liens against the property. All liens that are junior to the one being foreclosed upon are wiped out. 

Do I have to pay in full for the property that day?

Not unless the legal notice demands it, however, most sales have a $5,000 to $10,000 down payment requirement that day. Following the Judge's approval, a confirmation of sale order will be issued, then you will have 30 days to make the final payment. If the 30th day falls on a weekend or holiday, you must make the payment on the next business day. Failure to make payments as required, may place in you in contempt of court.
