Tax Sale

If a property within the District of Sechelt has delinquent taxes owing against it, the District will begin proceedings to recover those costs through its annual tax sale.  The tax sale is a public auction held each year on the last Monday of September.  At the time of a tax sale a list of all properties for auction is available from the District.

By statute, a Collector of a municipality must offer for sale properties that have delinquent taxes outstanding.  Taxes are considered to be delinquent if they are unpaid for three years.
