TERMS OF SALE: All interested parties must register and be approved by the Auctioneer. Registration and bidding is free of charge and done through the Auctioneer’s website at https://bid.forsaleatauction.biz/. If any interested bidders wish to bid on property, but are unable to do so online, please contact Andy Austin, Auction Coordinator, at (434) 294-6093 for assistance. Please be advised that in order to qualify as a purchaser at this auction, you may not owe delinquent taxes to Amelia County and you may not be a Defendant in any delinquent tax suit.
All sales are subject to confirmation by the Circuit Court of Amelia County. The Special Commissioner of Sale has the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to the estimated value of the Property. The highest bidder shall deposit twenty-five percent (25%) or One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), whichever is higher, upon receiving an emailed invoice. Bids which are less than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) shall be required to be paid in full upon receiving emailed invoice. Bid deposits shall not exceed Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00). Such sum shall be held by the Special Commissioner and credited towards the purchase price following confirmation of the sale. There will be a buyer’s premium of 10% of the highest bid added to the winning bid. The buyer’s premium is due at the time of the auction and will be included within the emailed invoice.
The highest bidder will receive their purchase contract and deposit balance due via email within five (5) hours following the close of the auction. The contract shall immediately be executed and returned to TACS. All payments must be made in the form of certified funds, cashier’s check, money order or wire transfer. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted. Checks and money orders shall be made payable to Amelia County and forwarded to TACS, at the address shown below. Wire transfer instructions will be provided to the highest bidder upon request.
The balance of the purchase price shall be deposited by the highest bidder with the Special Commissioner within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of the sale by the Court. Recording costs for deed recordation will be the responsibility of the successful bidder and will be due with the balance of the purchase price within fifteen (15) days of confirmation of sale by the Court. Properties are conveyed by Special Warranty Deed, subject to any easements, covenants, agreements, restrictions, reservations, and any and all rights of record which may affect the property. Property will be conveyed free and clear of all liens, including the tax lien. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the time of contract (the auction closing date of September 14, 2020) and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward.
Properties are offered for sale as-is, where is, with all faults and without any warranty, either expressed or implied. Persons are encouraged to make a visual inspection of the property within the limits of the law and to obtain an independent title search prior to bidding on any of the properties. Bidders are strongly encouraged to make their own inspection to determine the suitableness of the property and it is assumed that all bidders will perform due diligence prior to the day of the auction. Any costs incurred by the bidder to inspect the property are at the expense of the bidder and are non-refundable. It is not guaranteed that the property has a right-of-way or that it is not landlocked. Property is sold in gross and not by the acre. The information shown on the GIS system, including maps, is derived from public records that are constantly undergoing change and do not replace a site survey or inspection. There is no warranty as to the accuracy of the GIS system, nor is the information contained therein a legal representation of any of the features of the property which it depicts. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be.
The sale of property to the highest bidder is not contingent upon obtaining financing. Financing, if needed, is the sole responsibility of the high bidder. By bidding, parties are entering into a legally binding contract, waive all rescission rights, and understand that their bid is immediately binding, irrevocable, and enforceable. Additionally, by bidding, parties are representing that they have read, and agree to be bound by, all terms and conditions for this sale. Failure to complete the property purchase will result in forfeiture of any funds paid and may subject the highest bidder to additional damages, which may include expenses and any deficit upon resale.
