Judicial Tax Sale

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Code of Virginia § 58.1-3965 authorizes the Treasurer to initiate the sale of real estate which is delinquent for more than 2 years as of December 31st.  The Treasurer reviews properties with delinquent taxes periodically to determine which properties will be sold.  After owners are notified, a legal notice is published in the local newspaper as well as on this site.

If the taxes aren't paid or a payment arrangement reached with the Treasurer, then the County files a lawsuit.  Through order of the Fauquier County Circuit Court, Fauquier County seeks appointment of a Special Commissioner of Sale and that person sells the real estate to pay the past due taxes.  There are no tax sales of personal property: vehicles, farm equipment, etc. Tax sales are held periodically without any regularity.  Scheduled, will be listed below.
