Tax Title Properties

What is a Tax Title Property?

Parcels that have been offered for sale at tax foreclosure auctions, but not sold, are deeded to the county to be held in trust for the taxing districts. They may be purchased from the county, but through a different process than tax foreclosure. Tax Title properties are, however, still subject to the same risks as are tax foreclosure properties.

The property must be sold "as is." There is no guarantee or warranty of any kind, express or implied, relative to: Title, eligibility to build upon or subdivide the property; zoning classification; size; location; fitness for any use or purpose; or any other feature or condition of a foreclosed property sold pursuant to this chapter or sold pursuant to chapter 36.35 RCW as a tax title property. (RCW 84.64.080(4))

How is Tax Title property purchased?

Purchasing Tax Title property is done through public auction, or by private negotiation without a call for bids per RCW 36.35.120 and RCW 36.35.150. It can take up to a year to bring a parcel to sale.
