LETTER FROM YOUR AUDITOR
The Lucas County Auditor’s Forfeited Land Sale is scheduled TENTATIVELY scheduled Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 10:00AM in the Commissioner’s Hearing Room located on the first floor of One Government Center.
Note, if you are interested in bidding on forfeited land parcels, pre-registration must be completed by 12:00 p.m. Wednesday May 13, 2020, the day before the sale date. We CANNOT accept registrations the day of the forfeited land sale. Registration can also be completed on-line by clicking on "register now" at the bottom of this page. Following registration, you will need to check-in on the day of the sale. At check-in, you will receive your bid card, used for bidding at the sale.
We use two projectors at the sale to help bidders follow along with the auctioneer. The first projector will show the parcel for auction, and the second projector highlights the winning bid. Bid amounts are immediately entered, speeding up the check-out process from years past.
Our paperless process eliminates the need for folders and paper bid sheets, resulting in faster property transfers to winning bidders. Once the parcel is paid in full, the deed is created and recorded in the Recorder’s Office faster than before.
Please note: property can be taken by the state, school district, or county land bank at any time, even during the auction. I value your time, so I encourage all bidders to review the online list often or call our office to find out if the property you want is still on the list.
I am positive this year’s Forfeited Land Sale will be a great success. PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRE-REGISTER! All bidders MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED to take part in this year’s Forfeited Land Sale.
Please call 419.213.4406 if you need help to register online or schedule an appointment.
Lucas County Auditor
