MARK B. WESTEN, LANGLADE COUNTY SHERIFF
All Sheriff Sales are conducted at the Langlade County Courthouse, 800 Clermont Street, Antigo, WI 54409, second floor lobby at 10:00 am every Tuesday EXCEPT the third Tuesday of the month. All properties are sold "as is" and the Sheriff’s Office does not arrange viewing of the property.
Properties are generally advertised in local news papers and appear once for each of the six weeks prior to the date of sale and they are also listed on the Langlade County Sheriff website. Written notices are also posted in the courthouse, safety building, and town or municipality where the real estate is to be sold.
The Sheriff's office does not have any specific information regarding the property. Foreclosure sales are for real property only. The Sheriff's Office does not know whether or not persons occupy the property.
All Sales are subject to cancellation or rescheduling up until time of sale. If you need to cancel or adjourn a sale you may fax information to 715-627-6431. If you are interested in bidding on a sale and need to know if the sale has been canceled or adjourned you may call 715-627-6408.
The Langlade County Sheriff's Office does not have specific information regarding the condition of the property being sold. PERSONS INTERESTED IN OBTAINING INFORMATION ABOUT A PROPERTY ARE ENCOURAGED TO CONTACT THE PLAINTIFF OR THEIR ATTORNEY OF RECORD.
Sales of Property are "open-type" auction sales with the plaintiff normally submitting the opening bid. Anyone at the auction can bid on the property, with the property going to the highest bidder. If you are seriously interested in purchasing the property, you may want to contact a title company or attorney to perform a title search. Questions on the legalities of purchasing a foreclosed home should be directed to an attorney and it is the buyer’s responsibility to have the occupants legally removed if the property is occupied.
Third party bidders are to have 10% of their bid in cash or bank-certified funds, made payable to the Langlade County Clerk of Courts, at the time of the sale and the balance will be due following the confirmation of sale hearing; failure to pay balance due will result in forfeit of deposit to plaintiff. Buyer is to pay applicable Wisconsin Real Estate Transfer Tax and costs of recording fees made payable to the Langlade County Register of Deeds. The buyer is responsible for any and all legal encumbrances on the property, ie real estate taxes, etc.
