Property Tax Sale

The Tax Sale is a way for a municipality to collect unpaid taxes.  Any property with delinquent taxes (2 years overdue from the current year) is subject to tax sale. The Local Government Act gives the municipality the right to auction those properties with delinquent taxes to collect the taxes.  If a property owner does not pay the delinquent taxes, plus interest, before 10:00 a.m. on the day of the auction, the property will be sold at the tax sale.  The tax sale is held once a year on the last Monday of September at 10:00 a.m.

The property owner has up to a year to redeem a property sold at tax sale and purchasers should be aware they will NOT have the right to receive title or possession until after one year following the date of the tax sale.  For more information call the Village office at 250-499-2711.

Successful bidders must pay the upset price by cash or bank draft immediately following the tax sale and must pay the remainder of the full bid price no later than 2 pm on the date of tax sale; failure to pay will result in the property being offered for sale again at 10 am on the following day.
