Tax Deed Disclaimer

Please read the following disclaimer(s) prior to viewing the associated records.

Gadsden County Clerk Nicholas Thomas thanks you for visiting this site. Please take a minute to read the following:

Tax certificates may be redeemed at any time up until the actual issuance of a Tax Deed by the Gadsden County Clerk’s Office. If a tax certificate is redeemed, there will be no Tax Deed sale. All persons bidding on Tax Deeds are strongly urged to read Chapter 197 of the Florida Statutes and Chapter 12D-13 of the Florida Administrative Code. Bidders are required to pre-register the morning of an auction prior to 10:00 A.M. with the Tax Deed Clerk and post a $200.00 cash deposit. The auction begins at 10:00 A.M. Courthouse doors open at 8:30 A.M.  Successful bidder required to post a non-refundable cash deposit of $200 or 5% of the final bid amount, whichever is greater.  Successful bidder required to pay documentary stamp tax calculated at $0.70 per $100 and recording fees.

Tax certificates may include abbreviated legal descriptions. In the event the holder of a tax certificate makes an application for a Tax Deed, the same legal description is used and advertised in the public notices. This is the legal description that goes on the Tax Deed if there is a Tax Deed sale. Gadsden County attempts to use a legal description that identifies the subject parcel; however, all persons bidding on Tax Deeds are urged to verify the sufficiency and accuracy of any legal description prior to bidding.

Properties sold at a Tax Deed sale remain subject to governmental liens. All persons bidding on properties at Tax Deed sales are urged to examine title prior to bidding.

All Tax Deed Properties are sold "Buyer Beware.".  The properties being sold may also be subject to current year or unpaid property taxes and/or Government Liens.

If you are the successful bidder at a Tax Deed sale, there is no guarantee that you will be able to convey good or marketable title to the property to someone else or that the legal description on the Tax Deed is sufficient. If there is any problem with the title or the legal description, the general remedy is to file a “quite title” civil lawsuit. The institution of a suit to quiet title may involve having to hire an attorney at your expense.

GADSDEN COUNTY DOES NOT WARRANT TITLE CONVEYED BY TAX DEED.

If you have questions about your legal rights regarding any tax certificate, applying for a Tax Deed, Tax Deed sales, or land title resulting from the issuance of any Tax Deed, you are urged to consult with a private attorney.

For all other questions please call the Tax Deed Department at (850) 875-7029.
