What is the process for a mortgage style foreclosure tax sale?

The sale is conducted by the Wayne County Staff Attorney. At the sale, the highest successful bidder is required to make a deposit of 5% of the final sale price, or $750.00 (whichever is greater).  The sale is reported to the Clerk of Court and stands open for 10 days for possible increased upset bids. If no upset bids are received, the attorney confirms the sale with the clerk of court and notifies the successful bidder.  The successful bidder must deliver the balance of the purchase price within 10 days from sale confirmation.
