When conducting a tax-deed sale, the Clerk & Comptroller merely is performing its statutory function and therefore makes no representations or warranties as to the status of the title or the status of any liens on the property. Legal questions regarding the bid process, title to the property, liens affecting the property, or other matters related to the tax-deed sale should be referred to an attorney. In general, tax-deed sales are governed and administered by the Clerk & Comptroller in accordance with Chapter 197, Florida Statutes. These statute books are available to the public for viewing at the Legal Resource Centers in each of our Court Operations locations or online at the Florida Legislature website.
Each sale is based solely on the property described on the current tax roll and in no way involves representations or warranties as to the status of the title to the land or any improvements on the property.
Note: The Clerk & Comptroller is prohibited by law from providing legal advice and/or opinions concerning the real estate properties offered at auction.
