Auctions are held twice each year for properties that are foreclosed on April 1 due to non-payment of property taxes. The first minimum bid auction occurs in August. The second no-minimum bid auction occurs in October.

The County Treasurer contracts with Title-Check, LLC to administer tax foreclosure auctions. Please visit their website, www.tax-sale.info for more information. Parcel information, along with photographs of foreclosed properties will be available on Title-Check's website approximately 30 days prior to the auction.

Beginning with the 2021 foreclosures, in accordance with MCL 211.78t those who hold title or equity interest in property at the time of foreclosure, may file to claim leftover proceeds, if any are available, associated to those parcels which sell for more than the owing delinquency.  Claiming potential proceeds begins with filing the below form 5743 Notice of Intention to Claim Interest in Foreclosure Sales Proceeds with the Foreclosing Governmental Unit (FGU) by the July 1 immediately following the effective date of the foreclosure.  The FGU will respond by January 31 following the foreclosure auctions, with a form 5744 Notice to Claimant to File Motion with the Circuit Court.  Provided there actually are surplus proceeds remaining for the property, the claimant may then file a motion with the circuit court between February 1 and May 15, following the notice from the FGU.  The courts will then set a hearing date and time to determine claim payments.
