What happens if a buyer does not pay for a piece of property?

Delinquent Property Tax

All payments at public auctions must be in the form of a cashier's check, money order, personal check or company check. A letter of guarantee from the issuing bank must accompany personal and company checks at the time of registration. Letters of guarantee must state that the bank will guarantee payment up to a specific amount. Personal or company checks are unacceptable otherwise. There is reasonable time after the conclusion of the sale for parties to acquire a cashier's check or money order for the amount of their purchases.

Property Tax

Any bidder who does not pay once the auction closes may not participate in any future property tax sales. In addition, the bidder is responsible for all costs, expenses, and attorney fees expended in the collection of uncollected bids.
