If I purchase and there is a redemption period, when do I get a sheriff’s deed?

If you purchase property with a redemption period, you will be issued a certificate of purchase. When the redemption period is expired, you may then return the ORIGINAL certificate of purchase to the sheriff. If the property has not been redeemed, then you will then receive a Sheriff’s Deed. It is very important that you do not lose the original certificate of purchase. If you lose it, you will not receive a sheriff’s deed until you get a court order directing the sheriff to issue you a duplicate certificate of purchase. (626.96) If you fail to have a sheriff’s deed issued within 8 years after the date of issuance of the certificate of purchase, the sheriff’s sale will be cancelled. (626.97)
