Foreclosure Information

ALL Tax Foreclosures are held at the new Columbus County Courthouse, just inside the lobby, before you pass thru the metal detectors.

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS AN INFORMAL LIST OF ANSWERS OF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS!  FOR ALL THE DETAILS OF THE SALE AND THE REQUIREMENTS AS ORDERED BY THE COURTS, YOU MUST READ THE NOTICE WHICH IS POSTED ON THE BULLETIN BOARD AT THE COLUMBUS COUNTY COURTHOUSE AND/OR THE ADVERTISED NOTICE IN THE NEWSPAPER.

The list here is a general description of the property.  What is being sold, is the legal description of the property, as it is written and posted in the newspaper advertisement and as posted on the bulletin board in the Columbus County Courthouse. (the 911 address may not always be the exact location nor the mapping but it should be close).  If you have questions, you can see me at the office and I can help you.

You have to be present at the sale or to make an upset bid during the upset period(s) once the sale is held.

All bids are subject to a 10-day upset period. Property may be redeemed by the owner prior to the order of confirmation of the sale by the courts. 

A cash deposit of 20 % of the purchase price, or $750.00 whichever is greater, will be required at the time of the sale, at the Office of the Commisioner. (Attorney William E Wood)

All upset bids are done through the Clerk of Courts Office and they require a deposit of 5% of the upset bid amount or $750.00, whichever is greater.

Once the upset period ends, once the sale is confirmed, the last high bidder has (3) three days to pay the balance to the attorney holding the sale, or you may lose all or part of your deposit.

ONCE THE SALE IS HELD, YOU CAN CONTACT THE CLERK OF COURTS OFFICE TO SEE WHAT THE CURRENT BID AMOUNT IS AND WHEN THE LAST DAY TO UPSET THE BID IS. YOU WILL NEED THE FILE NUMBER  ___ CV________ FOR THEM TO LOOK IT UP.  910-641-4400  If you had the high bid at the sale or you upset the bid, you may want to stay in touch with the clerks office to make sure you are still the high bid on the property and that your bid has not been upset!  If the high bidder's bid is upset and they do not wish to continue bidding, you will receive your deposit back accordingly.
