The Whatcom County Treasurer may
conduct several property auctions per year, as necessary.
Different types of property can be sold at these sales.
The number of parcels
auctioned varies greatly from sale to sale. An auction may have
anywhere from one parcel to hundreds of parcels. Because they vary
so much in size, the location of each auction may also change to
accommodate the number of persons attending. When we have an auction
coming up, the tax foreclosure
minimum bid list, and the tax title
minimum bid list can be found here.
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.
Proceed to our property auction research
page for additional research information.
The following statement applies to all Treasurer's real
"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 for
any use or purpose."
