If I purchase property at a sheriff’s sale, do I get clear title?

Clear title is not guaranteed to real property sold at a sheriff’s sale. It is a Buyer Beware market. You must do your own research and we highly recommend contacting your attorney prior to bidding as you may not be purchasing what you think you are.
