Disclaimer: A foreclosure sale is an “as is” upfront purchase that could be risky. Your funds will be tied up for an extended period of time before you receive the deed and take possession of the property. It is strongly recommended to do the research referenced on our website. All sales are final. If you do not pay the balance you will forfeit your deposit. We do not accept cash. We only accept bank certified cashier's checks. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is not responsible for any unforeseen complications that may affect a sale. We do not provide legal advice. Consult with an attorney if you have any legal questions or concerns.
