A Quit Claim deed pursuant to PA 123 of 1999, conveying fee simple title and, drafted with the name(s) as entered on the registration, will be recorded by the Eaton County Treasurer’s Office with the Eaton County Register of Deeds’ Office within thirty (30) days from the date of the sale. The Quit Claim deed will contain and be subject to the following reverter clause:

Right of Reverter

The following right of reverter will run with the land: If the purchaser(s) allow the property to go into forfeiture for unpaid delinquent real property taxes, as described in the Public Land Sale Rules acknowledged by the Purchaser(s), for a minimum period of five (5) years from the date hereof, and if the Property is allowed to be forfeited for unpaid delinquent real property taxes in violation of this restriction, then the property shall automatically revert to Grantor in fee simple title. This right of reverter only applies to the original purchaser(s), or their affiliates who acquire title directly from the purchaser, who receive title directly from the Eaton County Treasurer and does not apply to any subsequent genuine purchasers. The Treasurer will request the Register of Deeds to send the recorded deed to the purchaser. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to contact the assessor and treasurer of the city, township, or village in which the property is located and file a “Property Transfer Affidavit.” Title insurance companies may or may not issue title insurance on properties purchased at the sale. The Treasurer makes no representation as to the availability of title

1 For example, a property purchased for $25,000.00; the amount paid on the day of the Land Sale Auction is calculated on the basis of a $25,000.00 bid price, plus $2,500.00 auctioneer fee, and $59.00 for recording the deed. The total cost of the property to the purchaser would be $27,559.00 due by 8:00 P.M. the day of sale.
