Repository Sale Information

Once properties have been exposed to first an upset sale, then a judicial sale and still have not been purchased, they are entered into our repository.


Be advised that the posted Repository List is to be used as a guideline and may include properties that have recently been sold or are pending sale approval.

All bids must be submitted using the provided form, either by mail or in person. A minimum bid of $250.00 is required. Once the Bureau receives your bid it will be submitted to each taxing district in which the property is located. All sales are subject to written approval from each of these districts.

If all parties approve your bid, you will be notified as to the total cost of your purchase plus recording fees and transfer taxes.

The Tax Claim Bureau will sell the property as described on the dockets of record and make no representation or warranty as to description, nor will it make any survey on a property sold. There are no warranties on the marketability of the title acquired.

The winning bidder shall pay the bid price in full by either cash, money order or certified check ONLY to be made payable to Warren County Tax Claim Bureau.

If you are the successful bidder, you will be asked to fill out a verification form stating that you are not delinquent in paying any other taxes in the district or any municipal payments. You will be asked to show your driver’s license or other form of photo identity, as this statement must be notarized. You will also be asked to sign a form certifying that you are the successful bidder along with your full address and phone number as to how you want the deed to be prepared.

We will not make any changes to this form, so please make sure to fill this form out neatly and precisely.

The Tax Claim Bureau will issue a deed to the purchaser, however we will not make any guarantee or warranty what so ever, either as to existence, correctness of ownership, size boundaries, locations, structures or lack of structure, liens, and title or any other matter. We strongly urge you to consult an attorney prior to purchase and also to drive by the location to make sure you have access to the property you are bidding on. No refund will be made after the property is sold.
