Whatcom County Treasurer may conduct several property auctions
per year, as necessary. Different types of property can be
sold at each of these sales. The number of parcels, or items
auctioned, varies greatly from sale to sale. An auction may
have anywhere from one item, to hundreds of items. Because
they vary so much, the location of each auction may change
to accommodate the number of persons attending, or the type
of items being auctioned.
Our next annual foreclosure sale is tentatively scheduled for November 2013, click on the date link to see the Minimum Bid List which will become available in September. No Tax Title auction is currently scheduled.
Anyone considering buying property at a Treasurer's sale
should be aware that there is risk. When selling parcels,
the County conveys the entirety of the interest that it is
legally capable of transferring, unless otherwise noted.
However, the County does not guarantee or provide warranty as
to the extent of the interest. The County makes no
guarantees whatsoever on parcels sold at Treasurer's sales.
The following statement applies to all Treasurer's
"This is a buyer beware sale. All sales are final. We
offer the parcels on a 'where is' and 'as is'
basis. The County makes no representation of warranty,
express or implied, nor any guarantee of warranty, express
or implied, as to the condition of title to any property,
nor the physical condition of any property or it's fitness
any use or purpose."
