 Any special assessments that were levied after forfeiture and certified to the County Auditor-Treasurer have been added to the appraised value and must be paid by the purchaser as part of the basic sale price.  These special assessments are shown on the list of tax-forfeited land with a special line entitled “Specials after Forfeiture.”

 RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES

RADON WARNING STATEMENT

 The Minnesota Department of Health strongly recommends that ALL homebuyers have an indoor radon test performed prior to purchase or taking occupancy and recommends having the radon levels mitigated if elevated radon concentrations are found. Elevated radon concentrations can easily be reduced by a qualified, certified, or licensed, if applicable, radon mitigator. Every buyer of an interest in residential real property is notified that the property may present exposure to dangerous levels of indoor radon gas that may place the occupants at risk of developing radon-induced lung cancer. Radon, a Class A human carcinogen, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause overall. The seller of any interest in residential real property is required to provide the buyer with any information on radon test results of the dwelling.

 Parcels Not Sold at Public Auction

 Any parcel not sold at a public sale may be purchased after the public sale by paying the basic sale price.  The basic sale price cannot be changed until the parcel is reappraised, republished, and again offered at a later public and/or private sale.

 Title:  Proof of Ownership

 The buyer will receive a receipt at the time of the sale.  Within a reasonable time, after full payment has been received, the County Auditor-Treasurer’s office will request the Department of Revenue issue a state quitclaim deed to the property.  A state deed has the characteristics of a patent from the State of Minnesota.  Title to the land to be offered for sale is not guaranteed by either Otter Tail County or the State of Minnesota. 

 The Otter Tail County Board of Commissioners reserves the right to reject any or all bids and to restrict or withdraw any parcel listed before or during the sale.

 Information about the sale of tax forfeited land in Otter Tail County can be obtained as follows:

  1. at the office of the County Auditor-Treasurer located at the Otter Tail County Government Services Center, 510 Fir Ave. W, Fergus Falls, MN  56537,

The balance of any special assessments that were levied before forfeiture and canceled at forfeiture are not included in the basic sale price and may be reassessed by the municipality.  These special assessments are shown on the list of tax-forfeited land under the column entitled “Assessments before Forfeiture.” 

Any special assessments that were levied after forfeiture and certified to the County Auditor have been added to the appraised value and must be paid by the purchaser as part of the basic sale price.  These special assessments are shown on the list of tax-forfeited land with a special line entitled “Specials after Forfeiture.”

 Title:  Proof of Ownership

 The buyer will receive a receipt at the time of the sale.  Within a reasonable time, after full payment has been received, the County Auditor-Treasurer’s office will request the Department of Revenue issue a state quitclaim deed to the property.  A state deed has the characteristics of a patent from the State of Minnesota.  Title to the land to be offered for sale is not guaranteed by either Otter Tail County or the State of Minnesota.
