Properties that are available for immediate issuance of a Tax Title will be auctioned online through bid4assets. Properties will be auctioned using a timed bidding process which will begin on Monday, March 18, 2019, at 9:00 am EST and end on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. Deed preparation and recording fees will be included in all sales transactions. A list of Forfeited Land Commission properties available for bid and any additional information can be found on the bid4assets website.

Properties become part of the Forfeited Land Commission when they have been advertised and presented for auction at the annual Delinquent Tax Sale but did not receive bid activity above the minimum bid. The property then reverts to the Forfeited Land Commission as the legal owner of said property after the end of the redemption period.

The Forfeited Land Commission is made up of a committee consisting of the Beaufort County Treasurer, Auditor, and Register of Deeds in accordance with South Carolina State Statute 12-59-10. The Forfeited Land Commission is the governing body with regard to the disposal of each property being in the best interest of the taxpayers of Beaufort County.

Properties owned by the Forfeited Land Commission can be sold and deeded after the end of their redemption period. This redemption period runs for one year and one day from the date of the Delinquent Tax Sale at which the property was originally auctioned. On occasion, properties owned by the Forfeited Land Commission can be sold and deeded immediately because the one year redemption period has passed.

A list of Forfeited Land Commission properties available for bid that is still in a redemption period is available on our Data page on www.beaufortcountytreasurer.com.
