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” (PTA). The Local Assessor can and may issue a fee for PTAs not filed in a timely manner. 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 insurance. The unavailability of title insurance is not grounds for re-conveyance to the Treasurer.

These legal costs are solely the responsibility of the purchaser.

Exterior construction materials, architectural details, form, fenestration, scale and mass should not be adversely affected nor the structural soundness or setting altered without prior written permission of Preservation Lansing affirming that such reconstruction, repair, refinishing, rehabilitation, preservation, or restoration will meet The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties set forth in 36 CFR Part 68.
Furthermore the Treasurer, at his discretion, may require that, as a prerequisite to closing a sale for a parcel within the City of Lansing, the Buyer will have to provide a copy of a filed City of Lansing Rental Housing Application, with a receipt of the appropriate filing fee, if said Buyer is not providing an OOC. All Buyers should consider that they may have to provide an OOC or proof of completion and payment of a City of Lansing Rental Housing Application when bidding at the Auction. The Treasurer may, at his own expense and discretion, provide a warranty deed and title insurance to any auction purchaser willing to sign an OOC.
SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS AND CONDOMINIUM FEES
All bidders should contact the county, city township or village office to determine if there are any special assessments for future tax years, on the properties offered. They should also check for other assessments, which may include but are not limited to County Drain, Road Commission or other Local Government assessments such as weed cutting, sewer, debris removal, demolitions and recorded non-exempt liens. Buyers of condominium property are responsible for any and all condominium association dues, fees or costs assessed to the property on or after July 20,2020.
For some parcels offered for sale there may exist a demolition order or a Department of Environmental Quality (“DEQ”) lien. Prior to closing the sale of these properties, the buyer must agree to the following:
A.) to the extent demolition or contamination removal has been completed, reimbursement to the county must be made for the cost of the demolition or contamination removal, or B.) to the extent that the demolition or contamination removal is not complete, there must be proof satisfactory to the Treasurer of the buyers ability to satisfy the Treasurer’s obligations via payment of a performance bond. C.) to the extent that a DEQ lien exists on the property there must be proof satisfactory to the Treasurer of the buyers ability to satisfy the lien.
If the parcel offered for sale is a “facility” as defined under section 20101(9)(o) of the NREPA, after the sale and prior to the transfer of the property under this section, the property is subject to all of the following:
A.) Upon reasonable written notice from the DEQ, the Treasurer shall provide access to the DEQ, its employees, contractors, and any other person expressly authorized by the DEQ to conduct response activities at the foreclosed property. Reasonable written notice under this subdivision may include, but not be limited to, notice by electronic mail or facsimile. B.) If requested by the DEQ to protect public health, safety, and welfare or the environment, the Treasurer shall grant an easement for access to conduct response activities on the foreclosed property under chapter 7 of the NREPA. C.) If requested by the DEQ to protect public health, safety, and welfare or the environment, the Treasurer shall place and record deed restrictions on the foreclosed property as authorized under the NREPA. D.) The DEQ may place an environmental lien on the foreclosed property as authorized under section 20138 of the NREPA.
Purchaser may also be subject to other rules and regulations under Part 201 of the NREPA.
PROPERTY TAXES The new owner will be responsible for the current year summer and winter taxes including any penalties and fees that become due and payable on or after the date of foreclosure. Summer taxes for 2020 are being collected in the minimum bid of each bid item. Furthermore, please understand that the buyer is responsible for all other fees and liens that accrue against a property on or after the date of foreclosure in the year that a property is auctioned. These items are not prorated. They include, but are not limited to municipal utility or ordinance fees, and condo or property owner association fees or dues. This can also include demolition and other nuisance abatement costs. These fees and expenses are not collected at the auction and must be paid by the buyer after taking title to any purchased property which is subject to such fees and expenses. POSSESSION OF PROPERTY We recommend that no purchaser take physical possession of any property bid upon at this sale until a deed has been executed and delivered to the purchaser. No activities should be conducted on the site other than a baseline environmental assessment for properties characterized as a “facility” pursuant to Part 201 of NREPA. However, steps should be taken to protect your equity in this property by securing vacant structures against entry and obtaining (homeowners) insurance for occupied property. Buyers will be responsible for all procedures and legal requirements for conducting evictions. Additionally, buyers are responsible for contacting local units of government to prevent possible demolition of structures situated on parcels .
The purchaser accepts the premises in its present “as is” condition, and releases the Treasurer and employees and agents from all liability whatsoever arising from any condition of the premises, whether now known or subsequently discovered, including but not limited to all claims based on environmental contamination of the premises. A person who acquires property that is contaminated (a “facility” pursuant to Section 20101(1)(1) of the NREPA, 1994 PA 451, as amended) as a result of release(s) of a hazardous substance(s) may become liable for all costs of cleaning up the property and any other properties impacted by the release(s). Liability may be imposed upon the person acquiring the property even in the absence of any personal responsibility for, or knowledge of, the release. Protection from such liability may be obtained by conducting a Baseline Environmental Assessment (BEA) as provided for under Section 20126(1)(c) of NREPA. However, the BEA must be conducted prior to or within 45 days of the earliest date of purchase or occupancy of the property. Persons who acquire contaminated property may have “due care” obligations under Section 20107a of NREPA even if they conduct a BEA and are not liable for the contamination. Pursuant to Part 201 of the NREPA, the person(s) responsible for an activity causing a release at the property is obligated to pursue response activities at the property. Consequently, the non-liable purchaser may be required to provide access to a liable party to conduct response activities at the property in the future.
Section 20116 of the NREPA requires that a person who has knowledge that their property is contaminated to provide a written notice to the purchaser or other person to whom the property is transferred which discloses the general nature and extent of the release. The Treasurer will identify the parcels offered for sale at this public land sale auction which have known contamination. Additional disclosure obligations may also apply at the time the property, or an interest in the property, is transferred. Accordingly, it is recommended that a person who is interested in acquiring property through this sale contact an attorney or an environmental consultant for advice prior to the acquisition of any property that may be contaminated. You may contact the environmental assistance center at 1-800-662-9278 for possible information regarding questions to environmental concerns on any of these properties. These Rules and Regulations are not intended to provide any prospective purchaser will legal representations or legal positions relating to statements included in this document.
