Delinquent Real Estate Tax Collections/Auctions

The attorneys of Shrader & Goad represent local governments in the collection of delinquent real estate taxes. The collection process is governed by the Code of Virginia under the provisions of Section 58.1-3965, et seq., subject to approval by the Circuit Court.

Parcels can be redeemed prior to sale by payment in full of accumulated taxes, including penalties and interest, attorney's fee, and costs expended. Redemption of a property by a nonowner does not convey title to the property to the redeemer, nor does redemption alter the status of title to the subject property. Redemption merely prevents the sale of a property.

Parcels not redeemed are auctioned. The sale of each parcel is subject to the approval and confirmation of the Circuit Court. Terms of sale are listed in each auction's notice.
