Certificate Sales

Certificate Sales

Certificate Sales (also referred to as Commissioners’ Sales) are parcels that were previously offered at the county’s Tax Sale and did not sell, so the County Commissioners acquired a tax certificate, which means they are a lien holder, just as if they had been a purchaser at the Tax Sale. The Certificate Sale enables the county to offer the parcels for an amount less than the original Tax Sale minimum bid and it also provides for a shorter redemption period than the Tax Sale.
