COLDSPRING – Hundreds of properties in San Jacinto County will be sold to the highest bidders Tuesday, April 2 on the county courthouse steps. Bidding will begin at 10 a.m. The interests of the named defendants in each lawsuit are sold at auction. The property may have other owners or lien holders not named. Tax sale purchasers are responsible for determining any liabilities or claims that may exist against the property, such as property owner association liens. There are no warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The property is sold "as is." All properties are being sold subject to any and all post judgment tax year amounts due. A sufficient portion of the property will be sold to satisfy judgments, interest, penalties and costs. Any property sold will be subject to the right of the defendant or any person having an interest therein to redeem the property on one of the following basis: Within six months of the date the purchaser's deed was recorded, upon payment of the amount bid for the property by the purchaser at the sale, including the amount of the tax due, recording fee and all taxes, and interest and costs thereafter paid thereon, plus 25 percent of the aggregate total; or within two years of the date or was designated for agricultural use as of the date the suit was filed, upon payment of the amount bid for the property by the purchaser at such sale, the amount of the tax due, recording fee and all taxes, penalties and interest and costs thereafter paid thereon, plus 50 percent of the aggregate total if redeemed in the second year, as provided by law. Redemption may also be made from the Tax Collector of the county in which the property was sold, in the event that the purchaser at the tax sale cannot be located.
