The two links below include contact information regarding changes in Sheriff Sales due to House Bill 390:
INFORMATION FOR ON-LINE BIDDING FOR SHERIFF SALES
Tax sales will continue to be scheduled on Thursdays, beginning at 10 a.m. at the East door of the courthouse.
Notifications will be published in The West Bend News for three consecutive weeks before the sale. All sales will have a tentative second sale date in the event there are no bids on the first date.
Bidding starts at an amount sufficient to cover the judgment, interest and cost. The highest bidder is required to pay in full at the time of the sale. The purchaser must file a Purchaser’s Information Form at the time of the sale. Click here for the Purchaser Form to be completed prior to the sale.
The highest bidder has 30 days from the sale date to obtain an examination of title at their expense, if they desire one. If said examination determines the title to be unmarketable, by reason of any defect in the Court proceedings or the existence of any outstanding interest rendering the title unmarketable, the purchaser may, within the 30 day period, file a written motion requesting that the sale be set aside. If the Court finds the title is unmarketable, the Court will refuse to confirm the sale or fix a reasonable time, not to exceed 90 days, within which the defect of title may be corrected. Federal tax liens may not be extinguished by the sale.
Sheriff’s Office does not have access to any of the properties. The recording of the deed by the Sheriff’s Office is when actual ownership transfers to the purchaser.
