Below are copies of public notices issued by certain Connecticut municipalities relating to auctions
they have slated to collect unpaid taxes and other charges under Connecticut General Statutes § 12-157. 

THIS WEBPAGE AND ITS CONTENTS ARE FOR GENERAL INFORMATIONAL USE ONLY, AND ARE NOT LEGAL ADVICE. SINCE MUNICIPALITIES AND THEIR ATTORNEYS CANNOT REPRESENT YOU OR YOUR INTERESTS, YOU SHOULD CONSULT WITH YOUR OWN LAWYER ABOUT HOW TAX SALES WORK AND WHAT YOUR RIGHTS AND DUTIES ARE.

THE MUNICIPALITY’S LAWYER IS NOT YOUR LAWYER. ANY INFORMATION YOU GIVE TO THE MUNICIPALITY’S LAWYER IS NOT PROTECTED BY THE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE AND IS NOT CONFIDENTIAL. SENDING ANY INFORMATION TO THE MUNICIPALITY’S LAWYER OR LAW FIRM WILL NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND THE FIRM. THE FIRM IS NOT RESTRICTED FROM USING ANY INFORMATION YOU SEND FOR ANY PURPOSE, INCLUDING USING IT TO ASSIST THE MUNICIPALITY TO CONDUCT THE TAX SALE, ON BEHALF OF ANY OF THE FIRM’S CLIENTS, OR OTHERWISE.

THE POSTINGS ON THIS WEBPAGE ARE PUBLIC RECORDS WHICH ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO ACCURATELY REFLECT THE OWNERSHIP, TITLE HISTORY, ENCUMBRANCES, DELINQUENCY AMOUNTS, BOUNDARIES, CONDITION, BUILDABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY, ZONING COMPLIANCE, ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS, OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROPERTIES. YOU MUST CONDUCT YOUR OWN RESEARCH TO VERIFY EVERYTHING IN THESE POSTINGS AND ANY OTHER INFORMATION YOU DEEM RELEVANT BY USING LAWFUL METHODS AND PUBLIC RECORDS AVAILABLE FROM TOWN DEPARTMENTS AND OTHER RESOURCES.

THIS WEBSITE AND THE MUNICIPALITIES CANNOT GRANT PERMISSION TO INSPECT THESE PROPERTIES OR COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR OWNERS OR OCCUPANTS. DO NOT TRESPASS ON THESE PROPERTIES OR HARASS ANYONE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT TAX SALES

Please read the brochure at this link FIRST because it answers most questions about how tax sales work:  GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT TAX SALES

Bidder checklist:
(1) Registration occurs at the auction, not before.  Unless the municipality announces otherwise, bids must be offered in person at the auction rather than by mail or phone.  Bidding on behalf of someone else requires a valid written authorization.  You cannot bid on a property if you are its owner or if you hold a lien or mortgage on it.
(2) Bidders must bring with them a valid government-issued ID and the purchaser’s social security number (for individuals) or federal ID number (for corporate entities).
(3) A $5,000 deposit per property (or other amount specified in the notice) is mandatory in cash or certified funds payable or endorsed to “Pullman & Comley, Trustee.”  Personal checks and home equity line checks are not acceptable.  Bidders will present this deposit when they register at the auction and pay it (only) when they are declared the winner.
(4) The balance of the purchase price must be received from the winning bidder within five calendar days (or if the fifth day falls on a weekend or holiday, the next business day) in cash or certified funds payable to “Pullman & Comley, Trustee”  or by wire transfer.  There can be no exceptions or extensions for any reason whatsoever.   Failure to do so permanently forfeits the entire deposit and the right to purchase the property.

UPCOMING TAX SALES

The following properties are slated to be included in auctions to be held within the next six months.  Click on the address for more information.  If you are an owner or encumbrancer of one of these properties and wish to pay the amounts owed in order to prevent the auction, please call 203-330-2230 for a payoff statement.  If a property was previously listed here but no longer is, then it has been removed from the auction, most likely due to either payment in full or a bankruptcy filing.

EXCESS PROCEEDS DEPOSITS

The following notices identify excess proceeds from tax sales which have recently been deposited with the superior court.  Click on the notice for more information.  Under state law, only record owners and encumbrancers whose interests were extinguished by the sale are entitled to these proceeds (NOT members of the general public), and they must do so within 90 days after the court deposit.  After that deadline, the unclaimed funds become the property of the State of Connecticut.  If a municipality has referred you to this website in response to your inquiry about excess proceeds, then no such claimable unexpired funds exist other than any listed below.  If you believe you are entitled to claim any of these excess funds, or wish to assist any such person, consult with an attorney immediately about the applicable procedures and restrictions.  There is no “claim form.”  Instead, you or your attorney must create a written claim to file with the court and  formally serve upon all other record owners and encumbrancers.  Do *not* send your claim to the municipality or name the municipality as a party to your claim, unless the municipality has explicitly consented in writing to participation in those proceedings.
