The property listing below shows the minimum bid price. The price on the tender form must be equal to or greater than the minimum bid price plus HST (when applicable). A valid tender bid must include the completed tender form as well as the minimum bid amount (plus applicable HST) in the form of a certified cheque, money order, bank draft, or lawyer’s trust cheque. The remaining amount from the accepted tender price shall be paid within three (3) business days after being notified of acceptance. Failure to pay the accepted tender price within three (3) business days will result in the property again being advertised and put up for sale. The Municipality will accept cash, certified cheque, money order, bank draft, lawyers’ trust cheque, or debit for the remainder of the accepted tender price. When a purchaser fails to deliver the balance of the purchase price within three (3) business days, the minimum bid deposit monies will not be returned to the bidder until the property has been resold. Any costs associated with the resale will be deducted from the deposit before the remaining balance is returned.

Faxed or electronically submitted tenders are not acceptable and will not be permitted.

The Municipality makes no representations or warranties to any purchaser regarding the fitness, geophysical, or environmental sustainability of the properties offered for sale for any particular use and are being sold on an “as is” basis only.

Note: Properties with less than six (6) years taxes owing may be redeemed within six (6) months after the date of sale as per the Nova Scotia Municipal Government Act, Section 152. As per Section 144 (2) of the Nova Scotia Municipal Government Act, the purchase of Tax Sale Properties by Municipal employees or their spouses is not permitted.

Although the Municipality has made all reasonable efforts to confirm ownership, it does not guarantee title or boundaries of the aforementioned properties. Prospective purchasers are responsible to conduct their own searches and surveys, or other investigations.

TAKE NOTICE that tax sales DO NOT in all circumstances resolve defects in title. A tax deed conveys only the interest of the assessed owner, whatever interest that may be. It is advisable to consult with a lawyer before purchasing a property.

The Municipality reserves the right to reject any or all tenders, not necessarily the highest tender, or to accept any tender it may consider to be in its best interest. The Municipality also reserves the right to waive formality, informality or technicality in any tender.

Please note: There will be no public opening for this tender and only successful bidders will be contacted. Unsuccessful bidders will have their deposits returned to them without delay.
