TERMS OF SALE: All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of the County of Warren. The Special Commissioner of Sale has the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to the estimated value of the Property. The highest bidder shall deposit twenty-five percent (25%) or One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), whichever is higher, at the time of the auction.

Such sum shall be held by the Special Commissioner and credited towards the purchase price following confirmation of the sale. All deposits must be made in the form of personal check, traveler’s check, cashier’s check or money order. NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED. There will be a 10% buyer’s premium, added to the final bid to determine final contract price. The buyer’s premium is due at the time of the auction.

Recording costs for deed recordation will be the responsibility of the successful bidder and will be due with the balance of the purchase price within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of sale by the Court.
