Tax Title Property

"Tax title" property is property that King County acquires when a property owner defaults on property tax payments and the property fails to sell at the annual Treasury foreclosure auction. King County holds the tax title property in trust for the taxing district.

All properties are sold "As Is" and "Where Is" without any representations or warranties expressed or implied. Buyers are required to conduct all due diligence of the properties prior to the purchase and rely solely on their own investigation.

Online Sales

King County offers tax title properties via an online auction service, Bid4Assets. You must register for a free account and submit a deposit to participate in the bidding. Auctions are typically held twice a year in March and July.
