Notice of Tax Sale

The Board of Selectmen of the Town of Harrington is accepting bids for the purchase of the municipality's interest in three (3) tax-acquired properties. Each bid must be in writing and in a sealed envelope marked "Tax Sale Bid" on the outside. Each bid may be for one property only; any person wishing to bid on more than one property must submit a separate bid for each one. All bids must be received by the Board of Selectmen no later than 4:00pm on May 25, 2017. Late bids will not be opened or considered.

Each bid must also include the bidder's name, mailing address, and phone number and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a certified check, or money order in an amount equal to or greater than 10% of the bid price. Each successful bidder's deposit will be credited to the total purchase price for that parcel. Deposits will be returned to the unsuccessful bidders. Any bid that does not contain the proper deposit will be rejected.

Bids will be opened, and reviewed by the Selectmen at the Town Office on May 25, 2017 at 5:00pm. The Board of Selectmen reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids. Each successful bidder shall have 30 days from the date of the bid acceptance in which to complete the purchase. Each property will be conveyed by a quitclaim deed without covenants. In the event that a successful bidder fails, for any reason, to complete the purchase in the time stated, the bid acceptance is void and the bidder's deposit shall be forfeited to the Town. The Board of Selectmen may thereafter negotiate a sale of the property with any or all unsuccessful bidders.
