Notice of Sale of Properties for Delinquent Taxes
To the owners of properties described on the list (to be published in July) and to all persons having tax liens, tax judgments or municipal claims against such properties:
Notice is hereby given that the properties described on the list will be sold by the Westmoreland County Tax Claim Bureau for non-payment of delinquent taxes, tax judgment or municipal claims filed against such properties in the dockets of said Tax Claim Bureau under the provisions of the Real Estate Tax Sale Law, Act of July 7, 1947, P.L. 1368, No 542 (72 P.S. 5860-101, et seq) and the amendments and supplements thereto. The sale will be held at the Court House in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. The sale will commence on Monday, September 14, 2020, at 10:00 am and will continue until such time that all the properties have been exposed for sale by public bidding. The terms of the sale are cash, personal or business check, money order, and certified or cashier check.
The approximate upset price and the owner or owners of each property are set forth below. The purchasers shall receive a deed in fee simple for the property sold from the Tax Claim Bureau as trustee grantor, and the purchasers shall be responsible for the payments of all transfer taxes and costs of recording. The sale of any property may, at the option of the Tax Claim Bureau, be stayed if the owner thereof or any lien creditor of the owner on or before the actual sale enters into an agreement with the Tax Claim Bureau to pay the taxes in installments, in the manner provided by the Real Estate Tax Sale Law. Mobile homes having delinquent taxes will be included in the sale.
Caution: Recent U.S. and Pennsylvania Supreme Court cases indicate that any mortgages, judgments or other liens of record against the property you purchase may not be divested by this sale. The Tax Claim Bureau suggests that you do a title search before bidding on any properties.
