Sheriff Sales are advertised in the Journal Leader newspaper which is published on Mondays. The ad runs for three (3) consecutive weeks. A sheriff sale can be canceled anytime prior to the sale date and time.
If you purchase a property at a sheriff sale, it belongs to the original owner until the deed has been recorded. This process takes at least 30 days. If you have any questions about a property up for sheriff sale, you should contact an attorney. The Noble County Sheriff’s Office cannot give any legal advice on this matter. The sheriff’s office does not hold any keys for the properties being sold. The Noble County Sheriff’s Office is not responsible for the condition of the buildings or property and therefore there are no guarantees. There was no inside inspection of the property and the sheriff is not liable for the condition of the property upon confirmation of sale. Properties are sold as-is, where-is.
Sheriff sales are held in the lobby of the Noble County Sheriff’s Office on Fridays as scheduled: 10:00 A.M.
There will be a deposit required from any purchaser on the day of the sale. Unless otherwise stated, the deposit is to be 5% of the appraised value. Deposit may be made by cash, cashier’s check, money order, or personal check. Purchaser must abide by the terms and conditions of the sale.
Any person bidding on a Sheriff’s Sale must have a completed real estate purchaser information form prior to the sale, for submission only if you are the successful highest bidder. The form can be picked up at the Sheriff’s Office or downloaded here.
