Utah County strongly suggests that all parties inspect the listed properties prior to the day of auction or placing a bid.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL
Make certified funds payable to the Utah County Treasurer
Payment is due at time of sale by cash, certified check, or money order.
All bidders will need to be aware of the following from County Ordinance 21-5-15 Miscellaneous Procedures :
(f) After the conclusion of the bidding for the delinquent parcels of property included in the annual real property tax sale, the sale will be adjourned for a one hour recess, during which time all payments for parcels of property purchased at the tax sale shall be made to the Utah County Treasurer. Any parcels of property which have not been paid for at the conclusion of the recess period will be re-auctioned. At the re-auction no bids will be accepted from any bidder who failed to pay any bid. If no bid is received at the re-auction for the parcel of property, the Board of County Commissioners may enforce the original accepted bid.
(g) Any individual who is a successful bidder for a parcel of property included in the annual real property tax sale and who fails to pay for said parcel of property, will be barred as a bidder in the tax sale the following year.
(h) All individuals and entities participating in the annual real property tax sale shall be subject to the Utah County tax sale procedures enumerated in this Ordinance, together with all additional instructions delivered by the Utah County Clerk/Auditor at the time of the annual real property tax sale. (Ord. No. 1996-07, 04-30-96; Ord. No. 2000-11, 04-11-2000)
**Keep in mind that the auction is a "Buyer Beware" sale. If you purchase property you will later be provided with a recorded tax deed, which is similar to a quit claim deed. Accordingly, it is your obligation as the purchaser to have researched each property. We hope you have done your research before coming to the sale as all sales are final.**
County Ordinance 21-5-4. Prohibition of Collusive Bidding.
Collusive bidding is prohibited, and all bids submitted and the tax deed issued thereafter will only be executed in the name of an individual successful purchaser. Collusive bidding is defined as any agreement or understanding reached by two (2) or more parties that changes the bids the parties would otherwise offer absent the agreement or understanding. The County Clerk/Auditor and/or the Board of County Commissioners have the right to reject any bid deemed collusive. (Ord. No. 1996-07, 04-30-96; Ord. No. 2000-11, 04-11-2000)
