2021 Foreclosure

A Certificate of Delinquency was filed with the Superior Court of Cowlitz County on June 7, 2021, which initiated the foreclosure proceedings against all real property tax accounts with 2018/prior taxes owing as of that date.  The Notice and Summons was filed on July 20, 2021, served on interested parties via certified mail sent on July 23, 2021, and published in The Daily News on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.

The Foreclosure Property Info Report lists the properties currently included in the 2021 Foreclosure process.

Properties currently in Foreclosure can only be redeemed by a recorded owner or their authorized agent with the payment of all taxes owing (including 2021) by cash, cashier's check, or EFT.  

The 2021 Foreclosure Auction is tentatively set to be held electronically at www.publicsurplus.com beginning December 6, 2021.  The last day to redeem a property prior to that sale date would be December 3, 2021.
