Rock Hill, NY – The 2017 Sullivan County Real Estate Tax Foreclosure Auction will be held Wednesday, June 14 and Thursday, June 15 at the Ramada Rock Hill at 283 Rock Hill Drive in Rock Hill, NY.
Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck urges potential bidders – especially first-time bidders – to attend a Bidder’s Seminar on Monday, June 12 at 7 p.m. at the same location. The terms and conditions of the auction will be explained, as will the foreclosure process and associated liens. Questions about specific properties can be answered at this time, as well.
Most properties up for auction can be viewed from public roadways, but selected structures will be personally shown to potential bidders by auction personnel on Sunday, June 11; Monday, June 12; and Tuesday, June 13. (Work shoes and flashlights are highly recommended, while pets and small children are not allowed.) The schedule of showings will be posted on nysauctions.com and in the County Treasurer’s Office on Wednesday, June 7.
Potential bidders who complete the online registration form must submit it by Monday, June 12 at 4 p.m. Those wishing to register in person can do so at the Ramada that same day at 6 p.m. (prior to the Bidder’s Seminar) or at the auction, starting at 8 a.m. both the 14th and 15th.
The auction itself begins at 10 a.m. both days, with the first half of parcels being auctioned on the 14th and the second half on the 15th. All sales are subject to final approval by the Sullivan County Legislature, which will hold a vote in public session on Tuesday, June 20 at 10 a.m. in the Legislative Chambers of the Government Center, 100 North Street, Monticello, NY.
“Interested bidders should ensure they’ve done their homework: personally viewed the property or properties, checked for outstanding liens and assessments like water and sewer, and are familiar with the auction terms and conditions, particularly the taxes and fees for which they will be immediately responsible upon placement of a successful bid or bids,” Buck reminded.
