GENERAL TERMS OF SALE: All sales are subject to confirmation by the Charlotte County Circuit Court. The Special Commissioner has the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to the estimated value of the Property. All properties are sold in gross and not by the acre. Properties are offered for sale as-is, with all faults and without any warranty, either expressed or implied. 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. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the auction date, and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be. Persons are encouraged to make a visual inspection of the property within the limits of the law and to obtain an independent title search, at their own cost, prior to bidding on any of the properties to determine the suitableness of the property for their purposes. It is not guaranteed that the property has a right-of-way or that it is not landlocked.
There will be a 10% buyer’s premium added to the final bid. The buyer’s premium is due upon the close of the auction and will be in addition to the required deposit amount. The highest bidder shall make a deposit in the amount of twenty-five percent (25%) or One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), whichever is higher, deposits shall not exceed $20,000 per parcel. Such sum shall be held by the Special Commissioner and credited towards the purchase price following confirmation of the sale.
