As a successful bidder, you must have the FULL amount of the bid delivered to the Pottawatomie County Clerk of the District Court before close of business (4:00 p.m.) on the day of the sale. Monies for the sale can be paid with a certified bank check. Buyers should be prepared to pay the full purchase before the sale. If you have any questions in regards to payment method please contact the District Court; 785-457-3392.
A redemption period is set for each case by the presiding judge. Most redemption periods are 90 days, but can be 365 days, depending on how much is still owed on the property’s loan. During this period, the owner may retain possession of the property if the bid amount and any other associated costs are paid. During the redemption period, the successful bidder has no legal right to access the property and the defendant can still reside and maintain possession of the property.
***Cancellation of a sale on a piece of property can happen up until advertised sale. The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office has no control over these events.***
