All deposits must be received by Bid4Assets no later than Tuesday February 18, 2014 (4:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT). Bidders must register BEFORE they post their deposit in order to insure that the deposit process completes correctly. Please finalize your deposit well in advance of the auction to ensure your eligibility to bid. All deposits will be accepted via wire transfer or by mailing a certified check or money order to Bid4Assets.


·         If you are the successful bidder, your $2,000.00 deposit will be applied to your purchase. If your deposit amount is in excess of the total amount of your purchase, a refund will be processed to you within 45 business days after the close of the auction.


·         If you are not a successful bidder, your $2,000.00 deposit and $35.00 processing fee will be refunded to you. This refund will be processed within 10 days after the close of the auction.


·         Parcels will be sold to the highest bidder. Successful bidders will be notified by Bid4Assets.

Additionally, you will be barred from purchasing at any Yuba County Tax Defaulted Auction for a period of 5 (five) years.


·         ALL PROPERTIES ARE OFFERED AND SOLD “AS IS”. Prospective bidders are responsible for researching the property(ies) in question thoroughly before bidding. The County does not guarantee the condition of the property, nor does it assume any responsibility for conformance to codes, permits or zoning ordinances. The sale of these properties should not, in any way, be equated to real estate sales by licensed sales person, brokers or realtors. The County assumes no liability for any possible liens, encumbrances or easements (recorded or un-recorded).

·         On a rare occasion, an item up for auction may only consist of a portion of ownership interest. It is your responsibility to research these items prior to bidding and to be aware of exactly what property you are bidding on, or in this case, what interest you are bidding for in a particular property.


·         The County’s purpose is solely to collect unpaid taxes and to transfer the tax defaulted property to a responsible new owner. No refunds will be made on any property purchase after the close of the auction.

It is the purchaser’s responsibility to determine if there are any liens or encumbrances against the property that might survive the sale. Examples of such encumbrances would be liens for special assessments, easements, improvement bonds, Federal Internal Revenue Service liens, or Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act taxes. Bidder assumes all responsibility for “due diligence” in considering purchase at this auction. Please investigate before deciding to bid.
