Bontrager's hosts auction of county and city properties seized for unpaid taxes

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Bontrager's Auction, tax liens

About 150 people registered for yesterday's auction of foreclosed properties at Bontrager's on Wortendyke Road.

The county was owed about $310,000 in back taxes for the properties included in the auction. The properties sold for a total of $665,000. Those figures are preliminary, said County Treasurer Scott German.

The city also had a handful of properties up for auction, but those figures are not available at this time.

All of the properties auctioned were seized by either the county or city for failure to pay property taxes for a number of years.

We'll provide more details when they become available.

Bontrager's owner and auctioneer Todd Jantzi.

A successful bidder.

City turns profit on three properties sold at tax lien auction

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, tax liens

The city realized a nearly $91,000 profit on the sale at auction of three properties that were seized last year because of delinquent property taxes.

Back taxes on the three properties totaled $66,686 and they sold for $157,500.

The names of the buyers were not released in a memo given to the City Council prior to Monday's meeting.

The properties sold were:

  • 339-341 Ellicott St. ($23,062 taxes owed, sold for $44,500)
  • 10 Swan St. ($18,730 in taxes, sold for $72,000)
  • 61 Oak St. ($24,894 in taxes, sold for $41,000)

This time things worked out in the city's favor, City Manager Jason Molino said. Sometimes properties at auction go for less than the unpaid taxes.

County to no longer cover cost of building demo following foreclosures

post by Howard B. Owens in foreclosures, genesee county, tax liens

When a property in a town or village is seized in a tax lien foreclosure, by law and by courtesy, the county ensures towns, villages and school districts receive the back taxes owed those jurisdictions. 

The county also reimburses some related expenses the local jurisdiction might incur, including, up 'til now, demolition costs on condemned buildings.

But that can get expensive, so County Treasurer Scott German proposed to the Genesee County Legislature on Wednesday that the county stop guaranteeing towns and villages that demolition costs will be covered.

German is asking the legislature to pass a resolution, followed by a letter from County Attorney Charles Zambito to mayors and supervisors, declaring that the county will no longer cover the cost of demolition on tax lien foreclosed buildings.

Some costs could be covered, German said, if the property fetches more at auction than is owed in delinquent taxes, but for parcels without buildings, that rarely happens.

German told the Ways and Means Committee that, for example, on a parcel that is less than an acre, it might bring $3,000 at auction, but the demolition cost on a building might be $20,000.

The way things have been, the county ends up paying the entire bill, even though it had no part in contracting for the demolition.

"Who can blame them for going in and taking care of demolition, but it shouldn’t be a county cost," Legislator Mary Pat Hancock said.

Under state law, the county must reimburse school districts and towns for taxes owed when it forecloses on a property, and the county has provided those reimbursements to villages, even though not mandated by law.

The city takes care of its own tax lien foreclosures.
