Tax Foreclosure Auction Set for September 6 & 7

The 2023 Sullivan County Real Estate Tax Foreclosure Auction will be held online only on Wednesday, September 6 and Thursday, September 7.

Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck urges potential bidders to register now at to receive a packet via email explaining the terms and conditions of the auction, along with the foreclosure process and associated liens. A bidders’ seminar is available to watch online, as well.

There will be no showings of foreclosed parcels, though most properties up for auction can be viewed from public roadways.

Bidding opens September 1 at 10 a.m. The auction itself begins at 9:30 a.m. on September 6, covering parcels in the towns of Bethel, Callicoon, Cochecton, Delaware, Fallsburg, Forestburgh, Fremont, Highland and Liberty. The auction will recommence at the same time on September 7 and cover parcels in the towns of Lumberland, Mamakating, Neversink, Rockland, Thompson and Tusten.

“Interested bidders should ensure they’ve done their homework: personally viewed the property or properties, checked for outstanding liens and assessments like water and sewer, and are familiar with the auction terms and conditions, particularly the taxes and fees for which they will be immediately responsible upon placement of a successful bid or bids,” Buck reminded.

All sales are subject to final approval by the Sullivan County Legislature.
