WHEREAS, the County Board is by law designated with authority to provide for the sale of such forfeited lands and direct county lands on terms included in the Notice of Sale, now

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Notice Of Tax-Forfeited Land And Direct County Land Sale be given by publication in the official newspaper of the County as provided by law, that the County Auditor of Itasca County offer such parcels of land for sale in the order in which they appear in said Notice of Sale and that such sale shall commence at 10:00 A.M. on OCTOBER 25, 2019 in the Itasca County Board Room, County Courthouse, Grand Rapids, MN.

TERMS OF SALE The County Board is by law designated to provide for the sale of such land on terms and such parcels shall be sold on the following terms, to wit: The appraised value of timber products listed and 15% of the appraised value of the land and 15% of the appraised value of building or improvement must be paid on the day of the land sale, except that for parcels under $501, the full amount of the parcel is due on the day of the sale. Any remaining balance must be paid within 30 days. No timber shall be cut, removed, or damaged until the entire purchase price for the parcel is paid in full.

All bidders must, between 9:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. on OCTOBER 25, 2019, before the beginning of the land sale, register with County sale staff and receive a number for bidding purposes. Registration will require picture identification acceptable to the County.

The land and improvements are being sold AS IS and the County makes no warranties as to the condition of any buildings, wells, septic systems, soils, roads, or any other thing on the tract. The tract is being sold with the understanding that the buyer and seller agree to waive disclosures required under Minnesota Statutes Chapters 513.52 to 513.60, and 103I.235 and any associated liabilities. No representation is made as to the condition of the structure, its fixtures or contents, or their suitability for any particular use.

As required by Laws of Minnesota 1969, Chapter 373, Subd. 6., there will be added to the sale price of any tax-forfeited land, an amount equal to three percent (3%) of the total price, said additional amount to be deposited to the State Treasury and credited to the tax-forfeited land assurance account.

All parcels of land sold hereunder shall be subject to zoning ordinances, existing easements, existing railway and highway easements, power and pipeline easements and leases, if any.

All lands whether zoned or not zoned which do not abut a legalized highway are subject to any and all existing restrictions empowered by statute relating to the expenditure of public lands.

The Minnesota Department of Health strongly recommends that ALL homebuyers have an indoor radon test performed prior to purchase or taking occupancy and recommends having the radon levels mitigated if elevated concentrations are found. Every buyer of an interest in residential real property is notified that the property may present exposure to dangerous levels of indoor radon gas that may place the occupants at risk of developing radon-induced lung cancer. Radon, a Class A human carcinogen, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause overall. The seller of any interest in residential real property is required to provide the buyer with any information on radon test results of the dwelling. Itasca County has not performed nor is aware of any radon testing on parcels offered for sale, unless otherwise noted. The County will provide a copy of the Minnesota Department of Health’s Radon in Real Estate Transactions publication to any purchaser of residential tax-forfeited or direct county property.

Any lands herein offered for sale that do not adjoin or are located on a suitable legally established and maintained public highway or road, the township wherein said lands may be located, or any other municipality, shall not for a period of five years, be obligated to the establishment, construction or additional maintenance of any public roads or the expenditure of any public funds for the benefit of the owner or occupant of any lands purchased, by reason of the ownership or occupancy of any of this land; provided further that nothing herein shall be construed to create any obligation directly or indirectly on the part of any municipality of the expenditures of any money for the benefit of said parcels after the expiration of said five year period.

All bid raises shall be made on a dollar basis above the total appraised value of the land and timber, but in no case will less than $5.00 bid raises be considered.

Any parcel of land on the list is subject to withdrawal from sale by the County Board or Land Commissioner when it appears to be in the public interest to do so.

All land not sold at the auction may be purchased at any time thereafter at not less than the appraised price to the first party that submits signed purchase agreement and payment per these terms of sale, or to the highest bidder or by sealed bid in the case of two or more simultaneously interested parties, until such time as the County Board may order a reappraisal, or withdraw said lands from sale.

Pursuant to Minn. Stat. 282.014, a $25.00 fee will be charged to purchasers of tax-forfeited land for issuance of the state tax deed. Purchasers of direct county land must pay a $25.00 deed issuance fee and will receive a quit claim deed from Itasca County.

Pursuant to Minn. Stat. 282.12, the State of Minnesota shall reserve all tax-forfeited minerals and mineral rights, and water power rights on tax-forfeited lands. Pursuant to the terms of Minn. Stat. 373.01, all mineral rights shall be reserved on direct county lands, together with the right to explore for, mine, and remove minerals thereon.

Minnesota Statute 282.014 requires that all State tax deeds be recorded with the County Recorder prior to issuing the deed to the purchaser. The purchaser must pay the $46.00 recording fee. In the event of Torrens Property there may be additional recording fees.

A deed tax of $1.65 for the first $500.00 of the purchase price plus $1.65 for each additional $500.00 or fraction thereof shall be paid by the purchaser to the County Auditor/Treasurer.

Purchaser is required to pay a fee of $50.00 for recording the well certificate where applicable, prior to the Auditor/Treasurer delivering the deed to the purchaser.

Certain parcels of tax-forfeited land located within cities, forfeited with unpaid special assessments for improvements. These special assessments were cancelled at the time of forfeiture. Upon sale of this land, the municipality may establish a re-assessment schedule for payment of a portion or all of the unpaid special assessments. Itasca County recommends that individuals check for assessments with the municipality office that the parcel is located within.

Except for land in platted subdivisions and lands conveyed for correcting legal descriptions, all deeds requested after August 1, 1991, will contain the following statement: This property is not eligible for enrollment in a state funded program providing compensation for conservation of marginal land and wetlands.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. IN CASES OF PAYMENT DEFAULT, ITASCA COUNTY WILL RETAIN THE DOWN PAYMENT (I.E. 15% OF APPRAISED LAND VALUE, ETC.) AS PENALITY AND DAMAGES, AND WILL, AT IT’S SOLE DISCRETION, DECIDE WHETHER THE TRACT(S) WILL BE RE-OFFERED TO THE NEXT HIGHEST BIDDER.
