Sheriff's Sales

If you are an attorney, requesting that the Sheriff act upon a court order regarding an execution of property, please contact the civil department if you have any questions as to deposit amounts, documents required, how many copies needed, and amount that will be due to the Stevens County Auditor for the levy recording fee. The levy recording fee must be in a separate check made payable to the Stevens County Auditor’s Office. THE CIVIL DEPARTMENT WILL NOT LEVY ON THE PROPERTY WITHOUT A SEPARATE CHECK TO THE AUDITOR’S OFFICE FOR THE EXACT AMOUNT DUE.   

If you've purchased real property and need a Sheriff's Deed, you must request this in writing to the civil department, along with providing the original, recorded, Certificate of Sale and the Confirmation of Sale signed by the judge. See Instructions for Winning Bidder 

Sheriff’s Sales are ‘judicial foreclosures’ (or executions) on real property to satisfy a money judgment. The order to sell comes from the Superior Court Clerk. We are selling only the judgment debtor’s interest in the real estate and the property is subject to all existing liens and encumbrances. We have limited information about the sale property since we do not need to know any information other than the address and legal description to conduct our sales. It is not possible for potential purchasers to view the interior of the structure prior to the sale.

The property sold may have a Redemption period from eight months to one year. Redemption means that the owner may pay back the amount bid at the sale, plus interest, taxes, etc. in order to "redeem" the property and become the owner again. If you have legal questions about this procedure, you should contact your attorney for direction, or read the Revised Code of the state of Washington pertaining to Redemption.

The creditor provides the opening bid to the Sheriff's Department by Thursday before the sale, in most cases, but occasionally the bid will not be available until sale time. If the bid you're looking for is not listed, it is not yet available. 

Sales are held on Friday's at 10:00 am at the entrance of the Stevens County Courthouse, located at 215 South Oak, Colville, WA 99114.
