Parcels are advertised and sold at a minimum appraised value or greater and will not be sold for less than the minimum appraised value.

Parcels are sold by sealed bid only. Bids should be accompanied by a cashiers check or money order for 10% of bid made payable to: Lincoln County Forestry, Land and Parks Department.

If awarded the property, full payment is required 30 days after notification of acceptance of bid, and a Quit Claim Deed will then be issued. An additional $30.00 is required for deed and recording fees. Acquisition of the property would take place once the new owners receive the Quit Claim Deed.

There may be outstanding liens that we are not aware of. It is the prospective purchaser's responsibility to research that information.

All back taxes are paid when the county takes possession of the parcels. Copies of the county and state statutes regarding back tax sales are available upon request.
