Accepted forms of payment are cash, cashiers check, personal check, or money order. All check/money orders shall be payable to Lake County. As stated in the Land Sale Policy, each property must be paid for in full, plus a $185 administrative fee, at the time of purchase with separate payments.  Each year, prior to the Foreclosure Land Auction, the County has the list of properties published in the Lake County Examiner each of the four weeks prior to the auction.  All properties are sold as is, thus a Quit Claim deed will be recorded for each parcel purchased.

LAKE COUNTY LAND SALE POLICY - updated February 6, 2019



Prior year properties not yet sold are still available for purchase. The list of these properties are on the Available 'Over the Counter' Land Sale List link below. All are sold as is and available to the first one that pays for the property, except on the day when we reduce price (based on the % of RMV) when we hold a drawing if there are multiple persons interested in a single parcel. Potential buyers don't have to be present to purchase the property. Simply mail-in or come into the office to make a purchase according to the Lake Sale Policy.

The 2020 properties that did not sell at the June 1st auction will be reduced to 25% the RMV on Monday May 10th, and if multiple persons are interested in the properties we will hold a drawing on the property to see who gets to purchase it, as with the 2018 properties that have not sold yet which will be reduced to 15%. Properties reduced to 15% of the RMV are the lowest % we can offer them, and we do not take offers. If you have any questions, please refer to the Land Sale Policy (linked above) or give us a call.  Thank you.
