Rock Hill, NY – The 2019 Sullivan County Real Estate Tax Foreclosure Auction will be held Wednesday, June 12 at the Sullivan Ramada Rock Hill at 283 Rock Hill Drive in Rock Hill.
Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck urges potential bidders – especially first-time bidders – to attend a Bidder’s Seminar on Monday, June 10 at 7 p.m. at the same location. The terms and conditions of the auction will be explained, as will the foreclosure process and associated liens. Questions about specific properties can be answered at that time, as well.
Most properties up for auction can be viewed from public roadways, but selected structures will be personally shown to potential bidders on June 10 and 11. The schedule of showings will be posted on nysauctions.com and in the County Treasurer’s Office by Friday, June 7. (Work shoes and flashlights are highly recommended, while pets and small children are not allowed.)
Potential bidders who complete the online registration form must submit it by Monday, June 10 at 4 p.m. Those wishing to register in person can do so at the Ramada that same day at 6 p.m. (prior to the Bidder’s Seminar) or the day of the auction, starting at 8 a.m.
The auction itself begins at 9:30 a.m. on June 12. All sales are subject to final approval by the Sullivan County Legislature.
“Interested bidders should ensure they’ve done their homework: personally viewed the property or properties, checked for outstanding liens and assessments like water and sewer, and are familiar with the auction terms and conditions, particularly the taxes and fees for which they will be immediately responsible upon placement of a successful bid or bids,” Buck reminded.
