TERMS OF SALE:   All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of the County of Scott. The highest bidder shall deposit twenty-five percent (25%) or One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), whichever is greater, 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). 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. The balance of the purchase price shall be deposited by the highest bidder with the Special Commissioner within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of the sale by the Court. 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.   Properties are conveyed by Special Warranty Deed, subject to any easements, covenants, agreements, restrictions, reservations, and all rights of record which may affect the property. There will be a 10% buyer’s premium added to the final bid to determine final contract price which must be paid on the date 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. In the event the high bidder fails to meet the terms, any deposit is forfeited and responsible for any subsequent sale deficiency if a later bid amount fails to cover the forfeited bid and subsequent sale costs.


Properties are offered for sale as-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 any of the properties.
