I want to bid on property. What do I do?
In order to bid on a foreclosed property you must present a pre-qualification letter from a lending source on letterhead stating the amount you are approved to bid. You or a representative must be present to bid on the property. No bidding by phone will be allowed. The auction is held on the courthouse steps at the date and time listed.
Is there a minimum bid?
Yes, the law firm or title company representing the mortgage company will be present and supply the opening bid.
If I am the highest bidder what is the process?
If you are the successful bidder fund in the full amount must be presented to the Campbell County Sheriff's Office, 600 W. Boxelder Road, Gillette, WY, within the hour after being the successful bidder. If the funds are not received, the next highest bidder has the opportunity to purchase the property at their highest bid price. For residential property the money is held for a period of three months during which time the lien holder has the opportunity to satisfy the loan. After the initial three month period, each junior lien holder has a 30 day period to satisfy the loan. The funds will be forwarded to the law firm representing the mortgage company. The funds from the sale will earn interest at 10% and is refunded if the lien is satisfied by one of the primary or junior lien holders.
Am I responsible for any liens, taxes or other filings against the property?
Yes. It is the buyers' responsibility to find out if there are any filings against the property. The Sheriff's Office is not responsible for disclosing this information.
It is highly recommended you obtain the services of a licensed attorney if you are unfamiliar with the foreclosure process in the State of Wyoming.
