Sheriff's Sales

Sale of Levied Property

Property levied by the County of Wayne may be sold at a Sheriff's sale.

Notice of the sale will appear in the Wayne Herald in the legal notices section for four consecutive editions. The notice will include the date and time of the sale, the location of the sale and a description of the property. 

The Sheriff's sale generally remains open for bids for a least one hour, or longer if more bids are forthcoming. Upon completion of the sale, the successful bidder will receive instructions on how to obtain a final confirmation of purchase from the issuing court. 

After receipt of the court's confirmation of purchase, a Sheriff's Title or Deed will be issued. The Sheriff's Office does not guarantee that the Sheriff's Title or Deed will be unencumbered. It is the responsibility of the buyer to research the property encumbrances prior to purchase.
