2018 Advertising of Tax Liens


Under and by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 105-369 of the North Carolina General Statutes pursuant to an order of the Board of Commissioners of Northampton County and the Town Council of Gaston, Lasker, Rich Square, Seaboard and Woodland, I am hereby advertising unpaid tax liens for the year 2018.  As required by law I am advertising in the name of the owner of record as of January 6, 2019, which is the date the property, became delinquent. The amount shown includes cost and interest.  Omission of cost and interest will not constitute a waiver of Northampton County’s claim for those items. Northampton County may foreclose the tax liens and sell the real property subject to its liens in satisfaction of its claim of taxes.

Ad List

When a parcel was subdivided after January 1, 2018 and ownership of one or more of the resulting parcels was transferred the amount of the tax lien on each parcel as shown in this advertisement is the amount of the lien on the original parcel as it existed on January 1, 2018 and is subject to adjustment when the taxes are paid or the lien is foreclosed.
