A Special Commissioner’s Sale of real property is handled under the auspices of the Circuit Court. The Court ensures that all parties are properly before the Court before authorizing a sale. The Special Commissioner’s Sale is free and clear of all liens on the property including the taxes due. The sale must be confirmed by the Court before a Deed can be issued.

A Non-Judicial Sale is conducted without court oversight and is limited to certain non-buildable parcels of real estate. The property is conveyed by a Treasurer’s Deed and the ownership interest remain subject to any pre-existing liens.

You are encouraged to consult with an attorney if you have specific questions about either of these processes.
