How does the Sheriff Sale work?

By law, the sale must be a public sale, unless otherwise ordered by the Court. Sales are held on Tuesdays at 10 am unless otherwise noted, on the first floor of the Henry County Courthouse (660 Perry Street in Napoleon). You, or a representative must appear to bid. All parties interested in purchasing a property at sheriff sale need to complete the Purchaser Information Form (PDF) and have this form completed and ready the day of sale.

Make sure you can meet the terms of the sale. Be ready to make your deposit at the time of sale. Caution: This is a Court function; if the sale is not completed, you are subject to being held in contempt of court and losing your deposit.
