Buyer Beware!

It is your responsibility to know what you are purchasing and the associated laws to the tax sale process.

There are NO REFUNDS. All sales are final.

  1. Be sure you have researched the properties you intend to purchase. There may be some properties with federal, state, or other liens, hazardous conditions, or that are considered common areas. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to research the property fully and understand how those conditions may impact your purchase.
  2. Non-tax liens or other obligations on the property may not be extinguished at the time of purchase or during any redemption period. We advise you to consult your attorney about liens and/or deeds of trust, etc. (RSMo 140.240)
  3. It is the responsibility of Fourth Sale Purchaser to understand the statutes associated with purchasing a fourth sale property. Since a court's interpretation of state statutes overrules any interpretation by the Collector's Office. The Collector cannot answer legal questions and no opinion of the Collector should be considered as legal advise.
  4. Payment of Fourth Sale Properties purchased must be paid between 120 and 150 days following the request to purchase in Collector's Office or said sale will be invalidated. In addition to the purchase amount, we will be collecting $27 on each parcel purchased for the Collector's Deed Recording Fee. In addition, there is a $35 processing fee payable to the Collector's Office.
  5. There is a 120 day redemption period starting from the day you request to purchase the Fourth Sale Property. After this period, you will be eligible to obtain a Collector's Deed if you meet the qualifications listed below. Failure of the purchaser to obtain a Collector's Deed by the 150th day will result in the property being offered for sale to others.
  6. What you will need to turn into the Collector's Office to obtain a Collector's Deed:
