Adjudicated properties to be auctioned off Wednesday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - East Baton Rouge Parish is going to hold an auction for tax adjudicated properties on May 4.

Adjudicated properties are properties that have failed to sell at a previous tax sale. The average starting bid on these properties is $3,500, which includes all closing costs, as well as the cost of title insurance. Title insurance protects the new land or homeowners owners against any past defects in the title of the property.

The auction will take place on from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4.

"Placing properties online has proven a successful method for the parish," said Special Assistant Parish Attorney William R. Aaron, II. "Citizens are either paying their delinquent taxes or investors are returning these properties to the tax rolls through their purchases."

Interested buyers can visit to view a map, a list, or a street view of the auction inventory of 16 adjudicated properties and register to participate in the auction.
