Auction Information

Properties that have been in default for five (5) or more years may become subject to the Tax Collector's Power to Sell. Power to Sell is a legally binding document that is recorded by the Tax Collector with the County Recorder's Office which gives the Tax Collector the legal authority to sell the property at auction as an effort to recoup any and all unpaid taxes and fees; this collection effort is required and governed by California Revenue and Taxation Code. In order to avoid Power to Sell being filed against your property, you would need to redeem (payoff) your property taxes prior to the fifth (5th) anniversary of your default date or enroll in and successfully maintain an Installment Plan of Redemption ("payment plan"). For those properties that remain in a tax-defaulted status for five years or more, are not enrolled in a good-standing payment plan, and have had Power to Sell filed against them will be offered for sale at public auction.


The tax sale will be conducted through and will take place Saturday February 25, 2023 beginning at 8:00am PST and run thru Tuesday February 28, 2023 with various closing times. Prospective bidders are required to register with Bid4Assets and submit a $2,000.00 deposit (plus any applicable fee charged by Bid4Assets). The deposit is fully refundable should you choose not to bid or if you are not the successful bidder of property offered for sale. If you are the successful bidder of a property, the deposit will be credited towards your purchase price. Please refer to Bid4Assets' website for more details regarding the bidding process and any fees that successful bidders may be subject to. Should the need arise, a reoffer sale is scheduled for Saturday April 22, 2023 beginning at 8:00am PST and will run thru Tuesday April 25, 2023.
