Sheriff's Sales

Important Disclaimer
The status of any sale can be changed any time up to the time of sale. Sheriff Sales are normally advertised in the Tuesday edition of the Daily Jeffersonian for a minimum of three (3) consecutive weeks. ENTERING THE PROPERTY WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE OWNER OR OCCUPANTS IS A VIOLATION OF OHIO REVISED CODE SECTION 2911.21. PUNISHABLE BY UP TO 30 DAYS IN JAIL AND A $250.00 FINE. The property still belongs to the original owner even though the order of sale has been issued from the court. If you purchase a property at Sheriff's Sale, and have a ten percent deposit down, it still belongs to the original owner until the Common Pleas Judge has signed the confirmation of sale and the deed has been recorded. This process may take up to 30 days or more. This is hard for people to understand, and can be very risky in terms of money and other concerns. If you have any questions regarding this you should contact your personal attorney before any real estate purchase from a Sheriff Sale. WE CANNOT ADVISE YOU OF ANY LEGAL QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. The Guernsey County Sheriff's Office does not have keys for the properties that are being sold. The Guernsey County Sheriff's Office is not responsible for the condition of the buildings or property and therefore are no guarantees. There was no inside inspection of the property and The Guernsey County Sheriff's Office is not liable for the condition of the property upon confirmation of the sale. Property is sold as is/where is.


I have read the above disclaimer and am ready to view the Sheriff's Sales.
