TERMS OF SALE: The Treasurer has the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to the estimated value of the Property. All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of the County of Westmoreland. 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. 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. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the time of contract (the auction closing date of December 11, 2020) and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be. 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.


The information shown, including 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 visual maps, nor is the information contained therein a legal representation of any of the features of the property which it depicts. 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. 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.


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. Deposits shall not exceed Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00). The deposit shall be held by the Special Commissioner and credited towards the purchase price following confirmation of the sale. Bids which are less than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) shall be required to be paid in full upon the close of the auction. There will be a 10% buyer’s premium added to the final bid to determine the “final contract price”. The buyer’s premium is due upon the close of the auction and will be in addition to the required deposit amount. Please consider the buyer’s premium when placing bids. 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. 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.


Terms applicable to In-Person Bidders ONLY: The highest bidder shall make payment of the deposit and buyer’s premium on the day of the auction.
