Thorough research on all potential purchases is essential. It is important that you complete this research before the day of the sale. There are definite risks when buying tax foreclosure and tax-title properties. Even County-owned surplus sales might present risks. Buying property without doing complete research can result in unwanted and costly surprises.
Warning: Even the most diligent research efforts may not uncover all difficulties or unexpected problems.
The Treasurer's Office will provide as much information as it has available. Title reports, maps, appraisal sheets, and tax information, are some items that will help you in your research. The Treasurer's Office is only a starting point though. Sometimes the information available is minimal. It is up to the buyer to pursue other resources. Maps, and some other parcel information, may be found by searching for the parcel on our website. Once you have searched, and located the parcel in question, various tabs near the top of the screen will be available to you. These tabs will provide information from our Assessor /Treasurer database.
