TERMS OF SALE:
All interested parties must register and be approved by the Auctioneer. Registration and bidding are free of charge and are done through the Auctioneer’s website at www.forsaleatauction.biz. If any interested bidders wish to bid on property, but do not have access to the internet, please contact the Auctioneer at (540) 899-1776 for assistance. Please be advised that in order to qualify as a purchaser at this auction, you may not owe delinquent taxes to the City of Fairfax or Fairfax County, and you may not be a Defendant in any delinquent tax suit.

The property is 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 prior to bidding on the property. Bidders are strongly encouraged to make their own inspection to determine the suitableness of the property and it is assumed that all bidders will perform due diligence prior to the day of the auction. Any costs incurred by the bidder to inspect the property are at the expense of the bidder and are non-refundable. It is not guaranteed that the property has a right-of-way or that it is not landlocked. The property is sold in gross and not by the acre. The information shown on the City of Fairfax website, including tax map plats and GIS maps, is derived from public records that are constantly undergoing change and do not replace a site survey or inspection. There is no warranty as to the accuracy of the City of Fairfax website, including tax map plats and GIS maps, nor is the information contained therein a legal representation of any of the features of the property which it depicts. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be. All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of Fairfax County.

The highest bidder will receive their purchase contract and balance due via email within five (5) hours following the close of the auction. The contract shall immediately be executed and returned to TACS electronically. The property is 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. The property will be conveyed free and clear of all liens, including the tax lien. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the time of contract (the auction closing date of May 31, 2022) and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward.

The highest bidder shall submit a deposit of 25% or $1,000.00, whichever is greater, with the Special Commissioner following the closing of the auction. Bids which are less than $1,000.00 shall be paid in full. The deposit shall not exceed $20,000.00. Such sum shall be held by the Special Commissioner and credited towards the purchase price following confirmation of the sale. The highest bidder shall also submit a buyer’s premium of 5% with the Special Commissioner following the closing of the auction. Please consider the buyer’s premium when placing bids. The deposit and buyer’s premium must be received in full by TACS within five (5) business days following the auction closing (no later than June 7, 2022 at 10:00am EST). Time is of the essence. All payments must be made in the form of a cashier’s check, money order or wire transfer. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted. Cashier’s checks and money orders shall be made payable to the City of Fairfax and forwarded to TACS, at the address shown below. Wire transfers are preferred and wire transfer instructions will be provided to the highest bidder upon request to Cat Bertram at cbertram@taxva.com. The balance of the purchase price and the deed recordation costs, as determined by the Fairfax County Circuit Court, shall be submitted by the highest bidder to the Special Commissioner within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of the sale by the Circuit Court. Please consider the deed recordation costs when placing bids. The City of Fairfax and the Special Commissioner have the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to estimated value of the property.

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 of resale.

Questions concerning the registration and bidding process should be directed to the Auctioneer online at www.forsaleatauction.biz or by phone to (540) 899-1776. Questions concerning the property subject to sale should be directed to TACS online at www.taxva.com, by email to taxsales@taxva.com or cbertram@taxva.com, by phone to (804) 545-2500 or (804) 545-2377, or by writing to the address below.
