Annual Property Tax Sale
Monday, September 24, 2012
The Local Government Act requires the District to sell at tax sale all properties whose taxes are in a delinquent balance. The delinquent balance is comprised of outstanding property taxes of three years.
Properties that have current, arrears, and delinquent taxes as of the last Monday in September will be offered for public auction with the starting bid being the upset price. Three years taxes must be outstanding before the property is offered at tax sale. All properties subject to the tax sale must be advertised in the newspaper before the public auction occurs. You do not have to pay all three years worth of taxes to keep your property from being sold, but the delinquent taxes (the oldest) must be cleared up before the Property Tax Sale.
The 2013 Tax Sale will be held in the Council Chambers of the District of West Vancouver, 750 17th Street, West Vancouver, BC at 10 a.m. on Monday, September 30, 2013.
Notice to Prospective Purchasers: Purchasers of tax sale properties should be aware that they will NOT have the right to receive title or possession until after one year following the date of the tax sale. During this period, the registered owner of the property has the right to redeem the property from the tax sale thus cancelling the sale. Properties sold at Tax Sale are subject to the Property Purchase Tax.
