Each bid must include the bidder's name, mailing address, phone number, and self addressed stamped envelope and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a certified check or money order, in an amount equal to or greater than 10% of the bid price. Each successful bidder’s deposit will be credited to the total purchase price for that parcel. Deposits will be returned to the unsuccessful bidders. Any bid which does not contain the proper deposit will be rejected.
Late bids will not be opened.
Bids will be opened, reviewed, and awarded by the Selectmen at their regular weekly meeting at the Town Office at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. The Board of Selectmen reserves the right to reject any and all bids. Each successful bidder will have until 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, to complete the purchase. The payment of the remaining balance must be made by certified check or cash. Each property will be conveyed by a quitclaim deed without covenants or warranties. The Town will record the deed. A $20 recording and administration fee must accompany the final payment. In the event that a successful bidder fails, for any reason, to complete the purchase in the time stated, the bid acceptance is void and the bidder’s deposit shall be forfeited to the Town. The Board of Selectmen may thereafter negotiate a sale of the property with any or all unsuccessful bidders.
