Auditor's tax deeds by Washington County (Utah)( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Auditor's tax deeds, which convey legal ownership of property from the county auditor to the county, were one step in the process of foreclosure for delinquent taxes. These deeds recite the amount of tax due for which the property was sold, the year in which it was assessed, the day and year of sale, the amount for which the real estate was sold, and give a full description of the property (Revised Statutes of Utah, 1933, chapter 80, section 10). According to Utah law, the county is authorized to execute a lien against real estate if property taxes remain unpaid. When taxes become delinquent, a certificate of sale facilitates a preliminary transfer of property from the owner to the county. The county holds the property, but continues to assess taxes for four years. During this time it can be redeemed by anyone willing to pay the delinquent taxes plus interest and penalties. If the property remains unredeemed after four years, the county can foreclose the lien by an action in district c ourt. Foreclosed property is sold at auction in May of each year (Utah Code, 1984-1985, chapter 59, articles 7-9)

Deeds (Silver Reef) by Washington County (Utah)( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The documents in this series of books, including Deed Record Books J, L, M, P, Q, and S, record the boom and bust of a Washington County mining town. Silver Reef had a population of 1,040 in 1877 and was abandoned by 1900. Deeds in Silver Reef conveyed land, town sites, mines, mills, water rights, and especially mining claims. However, the Washington County recorder originally began using Deed Book J for recording deeds transferring property from one individual to another as opposed to deeds conveying original ownership. These deeds include town lots in several town sites, predominantly Saint George, but also Washington, Harrisburg, Leeds, Middleton and Hebron. In addition to town lots, Book J also includes many mining deeds from the Harrisburg Mining District. Beginning with Deed Record Book L, and continuing in Books M, P, Q and S, these books primarily contain documents pertaining to town lots and mining claims in Silver Reef, but also include some deeds in Leeds and Toquerville. Other documents in this series include homestead and federal land certificates, mortgages, mortgages foreclosures, notices of location, liens, sheriff's and auditor's tax deeds, powers of attorney, estate settlements and occasional maps of mining claims
