Tax Sale 3/7/2017
NOTICE REGARDING THE AUCTION
Unless the entire outstanding amount is paid (including all tax "principal," interest, charges, fees, and/or expenses), the auction will be held as provided in the Notice of Levy and Sale of Real Estate except if otherwise ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction.
The auction will be open to the public and be subject to the rules stated herein and to the terms and conditions of sale stated and/or provided at the auction.
The property will be sold "as is" and with "all faults" in accordance with and subject to the rules and terms and conditions of sale established by the tax collector. It is now and will remain subject to all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations including but not limited to those related to planning, zoning, wetlands, health, building, safety, and the environment. Absolutely no guarantees are made as to the degree to which the property is or is not buildable , habitable, landlocked, contaminated, worth the purchase price, or suitable for any purpose, or as to the accuracy of any description, characterization, acreage, ownership, encumbrances, or addresses provided, or that the property or its title are insurable before or after the sale.
POTENTIAL BIDDERS MUST CONDUCT THEIR OWN DUE DILIGENCE PRIOR TO THE AUCTION AND ARE ADVISED TO CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY BEFORE MAKING A BID.
Interested bidders MUST attend the sale in person or by representative, bring government issued identification, provide a social security number or federal employer ID number, and tender a deposit of $5,000 in cash or certified funds payable to "John D. Watts, Trustee" at the time of the auction. The successful bidder must pay the balance of the sales price within five (5) calendar days thereafter or forfeit this deposit; in the tax collector's discretion, the second-highest bid might then be accepted. Title will pass to the purchaser six months after the auction except as otherwise provided by law, unless a record owner or encumbrancer validly redeems by paying the delinquency in full as increased pursuant to law. If redemption does not take place by the date six months after the auction and in the manner provided by law the delinquent owners and all mortagees, lienholders, and other encumbrancers who have received actual or constructive notice of such sale as provided by law, as well as all persons claiming interests which are inchoate or which postdate the recording of notice of this sale in the land records, are hereby notified that their respective titles, mortgages, liens and other encumbrances in such property shall be extinguished. This means that you could permanently lose all of your rights in the property unless the delinquencies are paid in full before the auction or within six months thereafter.
All inquiries regarding the auction and the amount due should be directed to John D. Watts, Esq. at the Watts Law Office 186 East Main Street, Clinton, Connecticut 06413, telephone number 860-669-6677.
