How do I request a Tax Title parcel to purchase?

The Grays Harbor County Department of Forestry and Tax Title Management manages the County tax title properties. These parcels may be requested by the public to be included in future tax title auctions.  Often, these parcels are small, oddly shaped pieces of land that are of no use to anyone other than the adjacent parcel owner. 

The public may submit an Application for Intent to Purchase Tax Title Property form  with a $500.00 deposit by Cashier's Check or Money Order payable to the Grays Harbor County Treasurer to request a parcel's inclusion on an upcoming auction. Such requests must be made no less than 6 weeks prior to the date of the sale in order to ensure sufficient time for notices.  Once an application is received by the Tax Title Coordinator, the Department of Forestry will review the application and the requested parcel to determine whether it would be suitable to be deemed in excess of the County's need and therefore eligible for sale by public auction.  Should it be determined that the requested parcel is not eligible for sale at auction, the requestor will be notified and their $500.00 deposit shall be refunded.  Any person who requests a parcel for inclusion in an upcoming tax title auction but then fails to show up and place a qualifying bid for said parcel at the auction shall forfeit their $500.00 deposit and be banned from participating in any Grays Harbor County auction for a period of 3 years.

Grays Harbor County makes no warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied as to condition, zoning, encumbrances, permitted uses.  Properties are sold where is, as is and buyers are strongly encouraged to do their due diligence regarding any parcel they wish to purchase.
