TERMS OF SALE: All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of Dickenson County. 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. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be.

Properties are conveyed by Special Warranty Deed, subject to any easements, covenants, agreements, restrictions, reservations, and any and all rights of record which may affect the property. Properties are offered for sale as-is, where is, with all faults and without any warranty, either expressed or implied. Persons are encouraged to make a visual inspection of the property within the limits of the law and to obtain an independent title search, at their own expense, prior to bidding on any of the properties to determine the suitableness of the property for their purposes. It is not guaranteed that the property has a right-of-way or that it is not landlocked. Property is sold in gross and not by the acre. There is no warranty as to the accuracy of the GIS system, nor is the information contained therein a legal representation of any of the features of the property which it depicts. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the day of the auction, and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward.

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. Bids which are less than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) shall be paid in full at the time of the auction. Deposits shall not exceed Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00) per parcel. 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.

Terms applicable to In-Person Bidders ONLY: The highest bidder shall make a deposit in the amount of twenty-five percent (25%) or One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), whichever is higher on the day of the auction, along with their buyer’s premium payment.

If any interested bidders are unable to attend for in-person bidding and wish to bid on property, but do not have access to the internet, please contact our office at (804)506-3102 for assistance.

The balance of the purchase priced shall be deposited by the highest bidder with the Special Commissioner within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of the sale by the Court. 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.

The sale of property to the highest bidder is not contingent upon obtaining financing. Financing, if needed, is the sole responsibility of the high bidder. By bidding, parties are entering into a legally binding contract, waive all rescission rights, and understand that their bid is immediately binding, irrevocable, and enforceable. Additionally, by bidding, parties are representing that they have read, and agree to be bound by, all terms and conditions for this sale. Failure to complete the property purchase will result in forfeiture of any funds paid and may subject the highest bidder to additional damages, which may include expenses and any deficit upon resale.

To qualify as a purchaser at this auction, you may not owe delinquent taxes to Dickenson County.
