May I inspect a property I’m interested in prior to the sale?
No. The properties are not available for inspection. The Sheriff’s Office makes no guarantees on the condition of the property sold at the Sheriff’s Sale. The Sheriff’s Office highly recommends that you consult with an attorney for advice about purchasing property at the Sheriff’s Sale. The Sheriff does not guarantee clear title to any property being sold. Properties may have numerous liens requiring buyers to pay significantly more than the bid price in order to clear the title. This is solely the BUYER’S responsibility. A title search is recommended.

All liens registered on properties can be obtained at the Prothonotary’s Office at the Courthouse. Public records for properties are also available at the Board of Assessment Appeals under “Property Records”.
