Upset bids are calculated and received by the Civil Division of the Clerk of Court. In order to file an upset bid, the upset bidder must raise the bid by 5% of the last bid or $750.00 (whichever is greater). The bidder must also provide a deposit in the form of cash/certified funds to the Clerk of Court of 5% of the new bid or $750.00 (whichever is greater). Each time an upset bid is filed, a new 10-day period begins. After all upset bid periods are completed, the highest successful bidder is notified and will need to deliver the balance of the purchase price to complete the sale. The Civil Division of the Clerk of Court is located on the 2nd Floor of the Wayne County Courthouse and may be contacted by phone at (919) 722-6100.
