Purchasing County-Held Certificates
LienHub allows you to view and purchase county-held tax certificates (most but not all tax collectors offer this option). To review available certificates and make purchase:
Sign in to LienHub.com.
Select a county using the Select a County menu on the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the page.
Click Purchase County-Held Tax Liens.
You will arrive at the View/Purchase Certificates page. On this page you can filter the list of available certificates using the options on the “Filters” panel. You can sort the list of certificates using any of the column headers in the certificates table. To see certificate details, click on the Certificate Number.
Once you locate a certificate you would like to purchase, click Add to Cart on the right-hand side of the certificates table.
To proceed to check out, click the shopping cart icon on the upper, right-hand part of the page.
Review the certificates in your cart and then click Proceed to Check Out.
If you have not yet designated a bidder for county-held certificate purchases, you will be prompted to do so on the My Bidders page before you can proceed to check out.
If the tax collector requires the submission of ACH Info before buyers are allowed to complete purchase, you will be prompted to submit this information. The tax collector will electronically remit redemption payments to this bank account. After submitting this information, you can edit as necessary by clicking My ACH Info in the left-hand navigation panel.
After clicking Proceed to Check Out you will be prompted to submit your payment information. This bank account will be electronically debited for your purchase. Once you have completed the required fields, click Submit Payment.
Next you will be prompted to confirm your payment information and the certificates you are purchasing. If this information is correct, click Submit Payment.
Once your payment is processed successfully, you will receive a confirmation in LienHub.
Please note: All payments for county-held certificate purchase in LienHub are processed by ACH. ACH payments cannot be confirmed immediately. Your financial institution could return your payment for reasons including insufficient funds or use of incorrect account information. Your certificate purchase will be marked as pending for at least 5 business days following submission. If your payment is returned for any reason, the pending purchase will be canceled and the certificate(s) made available for sale again.
