West Virginia Delinquent Land

Tax lien sales are held by the Sheriff’s office. Any properties not redeemed within 18 months are taken to a second sale held by the State. Properties not sold at the second sale may be purchased over the counter from the Deputy Commissioner of Forfeited and Delinquent Lands for each County. The Deputy Commissioner is appointed by the State Auditor.

No-Bid properties have been to a prior public auction and received no bids. Therefore, they can be bid on through the Deputy Land Commissioner at any time. However, if a land sale is scheduled you will have to wait and attend the land sale in order to bid on the property.
