Tax foreclosure sales shown here are conducted in accordance with the provisions of N.C.G.S. 105-374. Opening bid prices will be shown when the sales are set. All sales take place in the Mecklenburg County Courthouse, 832 East 4th Street, Charlotte, N.C.
NOTE: Tax Foreclosure Bidder Advisory
It is vital that all tax foreclosure tax sale auctions are free from collusion, bid rigging, and any other activity designed to suppress the final outcome of the auction. The expectation for tax foreclosure auctions is that free and open competition exists in bidding at all times. For the process to work, private individuals and organizations participating in the bidding process must do so independently. When competitors collude, or engage in bid rigging, they are subject to criminal prosecution by the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice, and/or local prosecution. The relevant North Carolina statute is G.S. 75-1, the Unfair Trade Practice Act (UTPA). This can be enforced by individuals; or by the NC Attorney General and the local District Attorney. Civil and criminal penalties are assessed for violations; criminal violations are a felony.
NOTE: Bidding Process
Auctions take place at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse. The property is read out and an opening bid is given, and at that point anyone can bid the property up. There will be a 5% deposit required if you win the bid at the auction. You (or an authorized representative) need to be present in person to make a bid. There is no online bidding capability for tax foreclosure auctions. The final bid at sale remains open for 10 days. During that time, upset bids can be filed.
Upset bids must be filed in person at the Special Proceedings Desk at the Office of the Clerk of Court in the Mecklenburg County Courthouse (3rd Floor) (832 East 4th Street, Charlotte, NC; 704-686-0460). You will need to fill out an Upset Bid form as well as a Certification of Identity. On the forms, the “Plaintiff” is Mecklenburg County. The “Defendant” is the current owner. You’ll also need to list the Case Number. Both the current owner and case number information can be found under the Tax Foreclosure Properties listing on our webpage. Note that unless you have an attorney, you do not need to fill out any section on these forms where it asks for attorney information (NOTE: WE ARE NOT YOUR ATTORNEYS).
The minimum upset bid amount is 5% or $750.00 (whichever is greater). Certified funds or money orders should be made payable to the “Mecklenburg County Clerk of Court”. Cash is also accepted at the Clerk’s office. After 10 days have passed with no new upset bids, the bid is confirmed and the case is ready to be closed. If you do NOT end up being the high bidder, your deposit will be returned to you. If you WIN the bid but fail to close, you risk losing your deposit.
