A Sheriff sale and a Tax Sale are NOT the same.
A Tax Sale is based on owed back taxes, and the property is bought subject to all liens and encumbrances. The minimum bid must be what is owed. If there are no bids for the first or second sale, the property may then be offered to the municipality or the land bank, All Tax Sale purchases must be paid in full on sale day.
A Sheriff's Sale is a foreclosure sale on one of the liens against the property. All liens that are junior to the one being foreclosed upon are wiped out. Bids at first sale must be at least 2/3 of the apraisal. The second sale may be at no regard to appraisal to best offered bid, unless ordered differently.
Yes, for a Tax Sale.
No, for a Sheriff Sale. Not unless the legal notice demands it, however, most Sheriff sales have a $5,000 to $10,000 down payment requirement that day.
Following the Judge's approval, a confirmation of sale order will be issued, then you will have 30 days to make the final payment. If the 30th day falls on a weekend or holiday, you must make the payment on the next business day.
Failure to make payments as required, may place in you in contempt of court.
NOTE: All payments must be in cash or Cashier's Check.
