EBR to host auction for tax delinquent properties
BATON ROUGE- East Baton Rouge Parish will host an online auction on Wednesday for tax adjudicated properties.
The auction is a part of an effort to collect delinquent real estate taxes.
“Placing properties online has proven a successful method for the parish. Citizens are either paying their delinquent taxes or investors are returning these properties to the tax rolls through their purchases,” Special Assistant Parish Attorney William R. Aaron said.
The online auction be held on Wednesday, May 4 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The parish is scheduled to sell 16 properties that have failed to sell at a previous tax sale. The average bid on the properties is $3,500 which include all closing costs and the cost of title insurance.
Title insurance protects the new land or homeowners against any past defects in the title of the property.
Interested buyers can visit civicsource.com to view a map, a list, or a street view of the auction inventory of the properties and register to participate in the auction.
