INFORMATION IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED LEGAL ADVICE AND IS NOT INTENDED TO
REPLACE AN ATTORNEY
As Sheriff’s Sales are buyer beware, it is
highly recommended you contact an attorney before purchasing at a
Sheriff’s Sale as you may not be purchasing what you think you are.
The Harrison County Sheriff's Office cannot give legal advice.
A foreclosure sale
occurs when a special execution is issued from the Clerk of Court with a
copy of a judgment with a direction to the sheriff that lists the specific
property the judgment was rendered against. This order will list the real
estate (legal description) to be sold. The Sheriff’s Office then sets a
sale date on the order from the court to sell the specific property.
The judgment amount plus
costs along with sheriff’s fees are prepared on a Notice of Sheriff’s Levy
and Sale and posted in three public places:
Logan City Hall
The notice must be
posted at least 4 weeks before the sale date. The notice must also be
published in a newspaper within the county. The first publication must be
at least 4 weeks prior to the sale date and the second publication must be
at a later time before the date of sale.
A redemption period may
be ordered in the judgment decree allowing the defendant a certain period
of time to redeem the property sold.
