Tax Deeds

 

UPDATED GUIDELINES

Any Property that is the subject of a tax deed sale is sold on an “As Is” basis without any warranties or representations of any kind or character, expressed or implied with regards to the condition of the property, marketability, zoning, of the presence or lack of presence of a mobile home. Should a mobile home be present on the property there is no guaranty of a successful ownership/title transfer. Furthermore, the Ownership & Encumberance report is prepared in accordance with FS 197.502 and intended for notification purposes only – it is not a title search and should not be relied on as such. You must do your own research or consult or seek legal advice.
 

Tax Deed Sales:

The Clerk of the Circuit Court is statutorily responsible for conducting Tax Deed Sales and issuing a Tax Deed in the name of the County to the successful high bidder at a sale. Tax Deed Sales and the issuance of Tax Deeds are governed by Chapter 197, Florida Statutes. The procedure involves a Tax Certificate Holder applying for a Tax Deed through the Tax Collector. (Tax Certificates are sold to collect delinquent taxes). There is no case filed in court and no court order is issued for the Clerk to conduct a Tax Deed Sale.
