Search Demographics:

Kansas is classified as a Tax Deed state. Tax sales are usually between the months of April and December. The counties publicize the tax sales in local newspapers approximately 10 days prior the sale. Most counties require bidders to pre-register prior to the tax sale. Properties have to be three years delinquent in order for the Treasurer to approve them for tax sale.

Auction Process / Redemption:

In Kansas the bidding usually starts at the amount owed on the property, and sometimes even less; they ocasionally have auctions where there is no minimum bid. Parcels are won through the 'Premium Bid' system. The sheriff will execute a 'Sheriff's Deed' once all court proceedings are finalized (approximately 3 weeks after sale.) There are no interest rates or redemption periods applicaple to these sales, with the exception of properties subject to a federal lien. The federal agency may redeem the property during the applicable federal redemption period, for which the investor will receive a full refund.
