Tax Deed Sales In Pennsylvania are usually in September

Pennsylvania Private Sales and Repository Sales

A Private Sale can occur after a property has been exposed but not sold at an Upset Sale. An interested buyer submits a written bid to the Tax Claim Bureau. The Bureau decides whether to accept the bid. If accepted, the bid is advertised in a newspaper and, and in the case of Montgomery County, the Montgomery Bar Association journal. Anyone objecting to the sale must petition the court within 45 days to disprove the sale. As in the Upset Sale, purchasers of property via Private Sales assume responsibility for all liens on the property, including mortgage liens.

A Judicial Sale is held at least once each year and can include only those properties that have been exposed but not sold at an Upset Sale. After advertisement, notice to owners and lien holders, etc., the parcels are presented free and clear of all liens.

Properties that are exposed but not sold at a Judicial Sale are placed in a Repository for unsold properties. Any bid on a Repository Property must be approved by all taxing districts where the property is located (i.e., township borough, county, school).
