Photo of Tax Bill

There are no tax sale opportunities with the Township at this time.
 

If property taxes remain unpaid for a period of three years, the Municipal Act provides for the municipality to register a "Tax Arrears Certificate." 

The tax arrears certificate indicates the property will be sold if the “Cancellation Price” is not paid within one year of registration of the certificate.  Partial payments are not accepted.  Upon the conclusion of the one year redemption period, the municipality may advertise the property for sale.  Advertisements are published in a local newspaper once a week for four weeks and in the Ontario Gazette for one week. 

Upon acceptance of a tender bid, the winning bidder has fourteen days to complete the transaction.  All properties are sold without warranty and “as is”.  The Treasurer is not bound to inquire into or form any opinion of the value of the land before conducting a sale and is not under any duty to obtain the highest or best price for the land.  The municipality has no obligation to provide vacant possession, if occupied.  NOTE:  Maps included with property information are for illustration purposes only.  They are not intended to provide legal or business advice.
