I want to bid on property. What do I do?

In order to bid on a foreclosed property you must present a pre-qualification letter from a lending source on letterhead, dated within three (3) business days before the sale, stating the amount you are approved to bid. You or a representative must be present to bid on the property. No bidding by phone will be allowed. The auction is held on the courthouse steps at the date and time listed.

Is there a minimum bid?

Yes, the law firm or title company representing the mortgage company will be present and supply the opening bid. The Campbell County Sheriff's Office does not know the starting bid prior to the sale.

If I am the highest bidder what is the process?

If you are the successful bidder fund in the full amount must be presented to the Campbell County Sheriff's Office, 600 W. Boxelder Road, Gillette, WY, within the hour after being the successful bidder. For residential property the money is held by the law firm representing the mortgage company for a period of three months during which time the lien holder has the opportunity to satisfy the loan. After the initial three month period, each junior lien holder has a 30 day period to satisfy the loan.  The funds from the sale will earn interest at 10% per diem and is refunded if the lien is satisfied by one of the primary or junior lien holders. The completion of the Sheriff's Deed is the responsibility of the successful bidder.

Am I responsible for any liens, taxes or other filings against the property?

Yes. It is the buyers' responsibility to find out if there are any filings against the property. The Sheriff's Office is not responsible for disclosing this information. 

It is highly recommended you obtain the services of a licensed attorney if you are unfamiliar with the foreclosure process in the State of Wyoming.
