The Sheriff's Office reads the foreclosure sales as a service on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month promptly at 9:00 a.m. in the Allegan County Courthouse, 113 Chestnut St. in Allegan.
The Sheriff's Office does not provide lists of what is going to sale as that can change right up 9:00 a.m. on the day of the sale.
You can find postings of all property to be placed for sale in the Allegan County News and Gazette, which is published each Wednesday afternoon. To bid on a property, you must attend the sale and be prepared to bid at least $1 over the amount that is read. If you are the successful bidder, the total amount of the sale must be collected within one hour of the sale for the full amount, in the form of a cashier's check. An additional $1 must also be paid to the County Clerk.
Any questions regarding the redemption period, ownership, or the property should be directed to either the mortgage company or the attorney for the mortgage company, not to the Sheriff's Office.
