Property Auctions to Resume on June 5

The Division of Real Property Tax, Office of the Lieutenant Governor, will resume its auctions of properties in delinquent payment status of ten or more years on May 23-25 in the St. Thomas-St. John district. The auction will be held in the courtyard of the GERS Building on Kronprindsens Gade, St. Thomas. Delinquent property auctions on St. Croix will take place from June 5-7 at the Virgin Islands Cardiac Center. The property auctions will begin at 9 a.m. on each of the scheduled auction days. Potential bidders are encouraged to register between 8-9 a.m., according to a press release issued Tuesday by the Division of Real Property Tax.
Owners of delinquent properties can either pay their balances in full or enter into an installment arrangement in order to avoid the sale of their properties. Property owners interested in making arrangements are advised to contact the Office of the Tax Collector at 776-8505 on St. Thomas, 776-6737 on St. John, 773-1105 in Christiansted or 772-0120 for the Frederiksted office. Property owners whose properties are in probate are asked to file their cases with the Recorder of Deeds Office in their district.
