Virginia State Overview:

On December 31st of each year, the county treasurer will begin the foreclosure proceedings on any property in which taxes are not paid by the end of two years after the property first becomes delinquent. The county treasurer will then take this list and send out certified letters to the last recorded address of the owner, and any other party that has financial interest in the property, letting them know that their property is delinquent. The county will then publish the delinquent list about three weeks prior to the tax deed sales in the local newspaper. The tax deed will be issued to the highest bidder winning the property at the auction.

Virginia is an oral bid state which uses the Premium Bid method.  The starting minimum bid will begin with the amount owed in back taxes, along with penalties and any administrative cost incurred. Participants will need to register before the auction begins. The payment methods accepted are cash or certified checks. The property deed will be sent in the mail approximately one month after the auction is over.
