  • Other - liens and encumbrances such as unpaid utility bills.

By placing a bid, you acknowledge that any statements made by the seller about the condition or market value of the property are subjective, and do not release you from your responsibility to perform due diligence. Please contact Bid4Assets if you believe that a seller is intentionally misrepresenting a property in their auction.
