Purchasing Property from Whitman County

The Whitman County Treasurer conducts three types of real property auctions: tax foreclosure, tax-title and county owned surplus property sales. The tax foreclosure sale is typically held the second Friday in December each year. The tax title and surplus sales are held as needed.

Risks to Buying Property at Treasurer’s Sale

Anyone considering buying property at a Treasurer’s sale should be aware that there are risks. When selling parcels, the county conveys the entirety of the interest, which it is legally capable of transferring, unless otherwise noted. However, the county does not guarantee or provide warranty to the extent of interest. 

The county makes no guarantees whatsoever on parcels sold at Treasurer’s sales. This is a "buyer beware" sale. All sales are final

We offer parcels on a "where-is" and "as-is" basis. The County makes no representation of warranty, expressed or implied, as to the condition of the title to any property, nor the physical condition of any property or its fitness for any use or purpose.
